Crostwater Distilled Spirits

Crostwater Distilled Spirits The inspiration for Crostwater came from a family story of immigration to the US, the appreciation of the spirits and their roots, and the desire to bring a unique experience to guests in a way that we enjoy. We are not your average tasting room, tour, and food service joint. We are a destination near the beaten path that is accessible to all and a fun place to relax after a long day Victoria Close is a first generation Russian whose parents came to the US after World War II. Albert Douk was born near St. Petersburg in Russia in 1937. During World War II, at the age of 5, his family fled Russia escaping political and religious persecution. His family fled through Russia, into Europe and eventually landed in Belgium. As a teenager, his family was granted sponsorship to the US. The family took roots in New Jersey where Albert finished high school and promptly joined the United States Air Force. As a US veteran and proud citizen of the US, Albert and his wife, Mila, are the inspiration for our business. Mila also found her way to the US through similar circumstances. Mila was born in Czechoslovakia while her parents were fleeing Russia during World War II. After many years of immigration, they landed in Venezuela until Mila was a teenager. When her family received sponsorship to the US, her home became Syracuse, NY. A few years after Albert returned from the service, he met Mila through mutual Russian friends. They were complete opposites and made a perfect couple. They were married within a year.
