The Mash Bill Monthly
Dear Friend of FLD:

Welcome to the new and improved Mash Bill Monthly, Finger Lakes Distilling's new monthly e-newsletter! New name, new look, same boozy content. Keep reading for tips on spoiling dad the whiskey way this Father's Day, a sneak peak at a very 'oriGINal' workshop coming soon, and dates for all of our upcoming festivals and events!

President, Finger Lakes Distilling
Tiny Still, Big Possibilities
We have officially installed and welcomed the newest addition to Finger Lakes Distilling. Meet "Wee Still", our shiny little baby that we will be using to run test batches and other fun projects. Wee Still has a 4" copper flute column that attaches to interchangeable 8-gallon and
26-gallon pots. It also has a gin basket that attaches to the column and allows us to experiment with different botanicals. Don't let her size fool you - Wee Still plays a BIG role in our new OriGINal workshop!
Father's Day the Whiskey Way
Gift giving on Father's Day is always a challenge. What do you give to the guy who seems to have everything? If you ask us, this is just one of those not-so-rare occasions when whiskey is the answer. Check out our latest blog post to see how FLD can help you find that perfect last minute gift for Dad this weekend.

The Dog Days of Summer
It's no secret that all of us here at FLD love dogs. This summer, we're hosting two days of fun in the sun for you and your 4-legged friends. The Dogs Days of Summer will be held all day long on June 24th and July 29th. We'll feature live music, a hot dog food truck, cocktail specials and a puppy playland complete with pet 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!
OriGINal Workshop Coming to FLD
By now you're probably wondering why we can't seem to spell oriGINal without random capitalization, but it's all because our new workshop really puts the GIN in oriGINal. Coming soon to Finger Lakes Distilling is a brand new program allowing YOU to spend a day in production blending botanicals to build your own perfect batch of gin! Participants will begin with a blending session to finalize their botanical recipe, move on to actually distilling the botanical blend themselves with the help of Wee Still and our head distiller, and will enjoy a full tour of the facility while the still is running. Anticipated launch date is early July, so stay tuned for more information on making your own OriGINal Gin at Finger Lakes Distilling!
