Finger Lakes Distilling
Located in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country overlooking Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes Distilling is one of the oldest and largest distilleries in New York State. They use all natural, locally grown fruits and grains to create high quality, handcrafted spirits including vodka, gin, brandy, grappa, liqueurs, and their flagship line of McKenzie Whiskies.
Finger Lakes Distilling is proud to have been part of a small group of distillers who brought distilling back to New York State. The distillery was started in 2007 by the McKenzie family who has deep ties to the Finger Lakes. The production facility and tasting room are a major destination in the region with over 35,000 visitors per year. Finger Lakes Distilling spirits have received national recognition for their quality, garnering numerous awards and press over the years. Their philosophy is to be genuine about everything they do—handcrafting all products from scratch so they can retain control and ensure quality. Roughly 95% of the ingredients used at Finger Lakes Distilling are grown locally, including corn, rye, wheat, malted barley, grapes, apples, cherries, berries, pears, and maple syrup.
