The Mash Bill Monthly
Dear Friend of FLD:

Summer is such a beautiful time here at Finger Lakes Distilling - the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the whiskey is patiently aging. It's the perfect time to try something new, like our brand new OriGINal Gin Workshop, or to relax with good friends in good spirits. One of our favorite things to do this time of year is mix up a tasty cocktail and enjoy the sunshine and the view from our deck. We hope you'll stop by soon to join us!

President, Finger Lakes Distilling
Distill Your Own OriGINal Gin!
We gave you a teaser last month - now it's time to announce that our OriGINal Gin Workshop is officially available! Our most hands-on workshop EVER allows you to create your perfect blend of botanicals and distill them yourself, apply your own labels to the bottle and walk away with 4 hours of distilling experience and 40 bottles of your very own OriGINal Gin!

Weekend Distillery Tours Available!
Interested in seeing how our whiskeys and other spirits are made? Join us for a McKenzie Whiskey Tour any Saturday morning of your choice through the end of November! If you're looking for a more in-depth experience, but you're running short on time, schedule a Barrel House Flight with us any time on a Saturday or a Sunday for a private tasting in our barrel house!

The Dog Days of Summer
We can't wait for another installment of the Dog Days of Summer coming up on Saturday, July 29th! We'll feature live music, a hot dog food truck, cocktail specials and a puppy playland complete with dog pools in case of hot weather. Admission is free of charge, and Tanner's P.A.W.S. will be joining us with some of their adoptable dogs. Click Here to learn more about the Dog Days of Summer!
Single Barrel Release Honors Mark Twain
This August, Elmira College will be hosting the Eighth International Conference on the State of Mark Twain Studies, and we are proud to participate by releasing a limited edition bourbon. This Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey honors Mark Twain as an iconic symbol of our region where he spent so many summers writing the classics we know today, and where he likely indulged in his favorite spirit - bourbon whiskey. This limited release will be available exclusively at Finger Lakes Distilling beginning on Monday, August 7th. A portion of proceeds from every bottle sold will be donated back to the Center for Mark Twain Studies.
