Finger Lakes Distilling is open to visitors from 11:00am to 5:00pm every day, except for the following major holidays:  New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.

Our visitors who enjoy the benefits of being over 21 years of age can legally try up to 3 samples from our full product line for a $3 fee. We also offer mixers to try with your tasting, including tonic water, Bloody Mary mix, and a selection of fruit beverages.

From the tasting room you can see most of our production area, including both of our copper stills. Our staff members are always happy to talk to you about the distillery, products, process, and any other things you may be curious about.

Our distillery store is located right in the tasting room and offers our full line of spirits, as well as branded Finger Lakes Distilling merchandise, local artisan food products, and a variety of cocktail-related items.

Tours of the distillery are available from May through November every Saturday morning at 11 a.m. The tour lasts approximately one hour and consists of a walking tour of the three building that compose our distillery, a sampling of three spirits, and a complimentary Finger Lakes Distilling glass.  The focus of the tour is the production of McKenzie Whiskeys – grain handling, processing, fermenting, distilling, and barrel aging – though other spirits are covered as well. Tour cost is $18 per person. Check back soon to view available tour dates for 2017 and book your experience!
