The Mash Bill Monthly
Dear Friend of FLD:

It's been a long winter, but it appears that spring has finally and officially arrived here at Finger Lakes Distilling. May means warmer weather (fingers crossed!) and mint juleps as we kick off the busy season with our 9th Annual Kentucky Derby Party and a very special 4-Grain Single Barrel Bourbon release this Saturday. After that, you can find us soaking up the sun and sipping on G&T's next to a box of our Seneca Drums Gin 😎

This bourbon will ONLY be available in our tasting room while supplies last starting May 5th!

Sunshine & Warm Temperatures = GIN WEATHER!
2 great new ways to help you enjoy the sun with some gin-infused fun
Our OriGINal Gin Workshop lets YOU distill your very own blend of gin from start to finish. A great option for bachelor and bachelorette parties, family reunions or just good ol' summertime fun. Spend an afternoon learning about gin, blending your own botanicals, and distilling your own batch with the help of our head distiller!

Did you know that our Seneca Drums Gin is now available in a 1.75 Liter box? This bag-in-box system is literally gin on tap with an easy pour spout and fully recyclable packaging. Perfect for days on the boat or on the dock, Seneca Drums is a crisp and citrusy for an exceptional gin & tonic. The new Seneca Drums Box is equivalent to 2.3 bottles and retails for $49.50!
We're always adding new events here at FLD as well as off-site tasting events.
