Hudson Whiskey New York Strip

Hudson Whiskey has teamed up with acclaimed New York butcher Pat LaFrieda to introduce a a limited-edition, whiskey dry-aged steak kit.

As “Dry January” continues to grow in popularity, Hudson and LaFrieda have created an option for whiskey lovers choosing to partake in the trend with the debut of the “Dry (Aged) January” Hudson Whiskey-Aged NY Strip Steak Kit.

The two storied New York institutions have come together to create the ultimate dry-aged New York strip, infused with Hudson Whiskey’s Bright Lights, Big Bourbon via a proprietary dry-aging process perfected through extensive testing by LaFrieda himself. The addition of Hudson’s bold, grain-forward Bright Lights, Big Bourbon whiskey to the process imparts notes of rich vanilla, lightly salted caramel, and deep umami flavor to premium cuts of beef.

“When it comes to quintessential New York food, there is nothing like a juicy New York strip, other than perhaps a New York strip dry-aged with Hudson Whiskey,” LaFrieda, owner and CEO of Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, said in a news release. “We are always looking for new innovative ways to evolve our offerings and were excited to work with Hudson Whiskey to bring our first ever Dry January kit to consumers.”

Beginning Jan. 11, these limited-edition kits will be made available on for a price of $158 (plus shipping). Each “Dry (Aged) January” Hudson Whiskey-Aged NY Strip Steak Kit includes two 16-ounce New York strip steaks, two Hudson Whiskey rocks glasses, a cocktail recipe card, and a Caskers code to order a bottle of Hudson Whiskey’s Bright Lights, Big Bourbon to enjoy at a time of your choosing.

A pioneer of the American craft whiskey movement, Hudson Whiskey started out like many New York stories, with a daring proposition. In this case, to make New York’s first bourbon ever and to open the first distillery in the state since prohibition. Born and bred in New York, Hudson Whiskey represents a spirit as bold as its home state.

“Hudson Whiskey is New York attitude distilled, and it’s important to us to support and collaborate with like-minded local brands,” Jill Palais, Senior Brand Manager, American Whiskeys William Grant & Sons, said. “We’re thrilled to bring fans across the country this delicious and out of the box (out of the bottle?) way to enjoy Hudson Whiskey this Dry January.”

Hudson Whiskey is available in restaurants, bars and retailers across the U.S. For more information, visit
