Dear Friend of FLD:
Happy New Year - we hope 2017 is off to a great start for all of you! People assume that the winter months are pretty slow in the Finger Lakes, and while the tourist traffic does decline quite a bit, I can assure you we have plenty of work to do here at FLD.
On the production front, we recently distilled almost 17,000 gallons of wine that will be used for brandy, vodka, gin, liqueurs and
. We quickly switched back to our regular whiskey production and continue to stock our warehouse with Bourbon, Rye and some other future surprises.
I was amazed at the response we got from our
new marketing video
. We received over 5,000 views and connected with over 15,000 people on social media. We appreciate all the feedback.
Now for the fun stuff...as promised, take a look at our
that was produced as part of this project.
Even though the weather is a bit unpredictable in the Finger Lakes right now, I would highly suggest a winter visit if you have the time. Seneca Lake takes on a different kind of beauty this time of year and establishments are less crowded, so you can take more time to chat with tasting room staff members and can sometimes even engage directly with the makers of our local wine, beer, cider and, of course, spirits.
Hope to see you soon,
President, Finger Lakes Distilling
