Hi LynnAndRick! Sorry to hear about the service during your last visit. We do our best to provide an educational experience here at FLD, but as you know, busy days present a challenge. Since it sounds like you would enjoy learning more about the distilling process and our products, we hope you'll consider joining us for a tour this season.... More

Found this place by accident after traveling and tasting wine all day. It was our favorite. Very nice people and great tastings. The Cherry Liqueur was amazing. Wish I could get it near home because the bottle I brought back is already EMPTY.

We tried this on a recommendation of a bartender in Watkins Glen. They served their liquor there so we knew it was a tasty brew. They have the distillery in view of the tasting room. Large rooms in and out for enjoying. The vodka was nice and they offer to mix your sample with a juice. You can also buy... More

We went early in the day on a Sunday so it wasn't too busy but this place is set up for enjoyment. Between the tasting room, cocktail bar, and patio looking out over Seneca lake this is definitely a must stop for a break from the wine. It was $3 for three tastes and they can add mixers to your...

I highly recommend stopping at this distillery. My husband and I were the only 2 on the tour, so it was like we had a private invitation to see how liquor is made! And sampling!!!! That was the best, we tried them all! Make sure you stop by and do the tour!

While the Finger Lakes is known primarily for being wine country, it is also the location for a quality distillery. The Finger Lakes Distilling Company makes serious distilled spirits. We enjoyed visiting the tasting room, seeing the stills, and sampling several of their products. Our favorite was the McKenzie Rye Whiskey, although we also enjoyed the gins.

Sadly, we did not get to taste this time, but the staff is awesome, and from the sounds coming from the tasting bar...it was delish. Cherry and raspberry liquors have my name on them for next time...but if you like whiskey and such, they're happy to provide that (and more!). They also sell oak barrels and interesting gift items. I'd... More

They have good aged whiskeys, their flavored vodkas are very good added to mixed drinks and I loved all of their liqueurs Raspberry, cherry and Cassis. The Grappa goes down very smooth but gives you a nice little bite at the back of your throat.
