The local paper in Watkins Glen featured a story about an award we received at the recent SCOPED dinner, the Entrepreneur of the Year Award. I was honored to receive the award and also very surprised since there is so much left to do before we even open the doors. SCOPED is the local economic development agency in Schuyler County - they have been incredibly helpful in getting our business started.

Ron White

We just caught Ron White of Blue Collar Comedy Tour Fame at the Clemens Center in Elmira tonight. Ron didn't disappoint and had the sold out crowd laughing hysterically for almost an hour and a half. That's my wife Jenny and me pictured with Ron, below. We put together a little care package from Finger Lakes Distilling that included a sample of our upcoming corn whiskey release and a few FLD-branded cigars. For those of you that haven't seen Mr. White, he likes to indulge in scotch and cigars during his comedy routines. Pretty awesome night.
