The spirits community is mourning the death of Hudson Whiskey co-founder Gable ‘Gabe’ Erenzo, who died suddenly in his sleep at the age of 41, according to a Facebook announcement by his father, Ralph Erenzo.
The post read: “Gable worked tirelessly with his father Ralph to develop and nurture the Hudson Whiskey and Tuthilltown Spirits’ brands before travelling the world as Hudson’s first brand ambassador. His bold personality, genuine warmth, and sense of humour brought joy to anyone he encountered.
“During our early years, Gable’s unwavering determination fuelled our team with a passion and enthusiasm that continues to inspire our work today. We share our condolences with the entire Erenzo family and anyone else who was fortunate enough to know Gable.”
A spirits innovator, Erenzo and his father created two nationally popular spirits brands: Hudson Whiskey and Tuthilltown Spirits, with Erenzo also founding Gardiner Liquid Mercantile in Gardiner, New York.
