Things have been crazy busy at the distillery, but no excuse for neglecting our blog posts. We've expanded our product line to 8 items now: Vintner's Vodka, Vintner's Wildberry Vodka, Seneca Drums Gin, Glen Thunder Corn Whiskey and 4 different liqueurs, Cassis, Maplejack, Blueberry and Raspberry. We've got some aged whiskeys coming out this fall and a number of other liqueurs in the works.

We are distributing throughout the Finger Lakes from Elmira/Corning up through Rochester.

We have had a lot of local press in Rochester lately.

Here is a story that was featured in the Democrat & Chronicle.

Also, check out this piece that aired on Wham-13 News.

Finally, Michael Warren Thomas interviewed me on his weekly radio show, The Grapevine. You can download the program here.

Race Week!

Heading up to the Glen for this weekend's big NASCAR race? Make sure you've got some of our recently-released corn whiskey on hand.

It's available in pint-sized bottles for $12 at the distillery and at several retailers in the Elmira-Watkins area.

Glen Thunder is a fine-tuned, true American corn whiskey, made to honor one of America’s greatest raceways, Watkins Glen. For more than 60 years, the world’s best drivers and most die-hard fans have come to "The Glen." Its legendary road course has seen everything from the early days of racing in the streets, to the wild spectacle of the Grand Prix, to today’s high-tech open-wheel and stock car races.

Racing at The Glen is all about balance and power, and the same goes for Glen Thunder. The mellow corn flavors give it the feel of a smooth ride, but don’t be fooled, because under the hood, it’s still got plenty of horsepower. Enjoy Glen Thunder over ice, mix it in your favorite cocktail, or take it how we recommend, straight out of the bottle.
