The Mash Bill Monthly
Dear Friend of FLD:

The last month has been filled with highs and lows for us here at Finger Lakes Distilling. We've been grateful for an amazing start to the season, beginning with our sold-out Kentucky Derby Party and a successful Memorial Day Weekend with our new tasting room team members. Though we've celebrated some wins and are close to bringing you a couple of brand new products, the past month also brought us the loss of a dear friend and colleague, Dano Hutnik, owner and chef at Dano's Heuriger on Seneca. I had the honor and privilege to host a dinner with Dano at the James Beard House last year and I will miss his weekly visit to chat about collaborations like Chanterelle liqueurs and aging cured meats in our rick house. Though the loss of a good friend is always a terrible thing to endure, we are hopeful that we can continue to spread the spirit of the Finger Lakes with the same passion and enthusiasm that Dano always inspired.
