The Mash Bill Monthly
Dear Friend of FLD:

It's been a little while since we rolled out one of our video releases, but with the end of summer so near, we could all use a little pick-me-up. Check out one of our favorites below - a short and sweet ode to McKenzie Rye, and keep reading for more of what's happening at Finger Lakes Distilling this month.

Free Cocktail with Your Next Tour!
It's just like the good old days of Saturday morning cartoons and pancakes, except the cartoons are a distillery tour and the pancakes are a Bloody Mary. Book a McKenzie Whiskey Tour during the month of September and receive one free cocktail voucher for each member of your tour group.

It's Simple Math...
$125 + 8 friends = 40 bottles of gin + 4 hours of fun!
All you need is 7 friends and $125 to enjoy this unique DIY workshop experience. Design and distill your own blend of gin from start to finish, enjoy a full distillery tour and Gin 101 class, and walk away with 40 bottles of your OriGINal Gin to split with your group!

Seneca Drums Wins Best Spirit!
We're very excited to share the news that our Seneca Drums Gin received a Double Gold at the 2017 New York Wine & Food Classic and was named Best Spirit in the Best of Class competition! The 2017 competition marks the third time that our Seneca Drums Gin has been awarded Best Spirit and the fifth time an FLD product has been awarded Best Spirit. We hope you'll help us celebrate this winning tradition by picking up a bottle of Seneca Drums and toasting to a true taste of lakeside summer in New York State!
