  • This place had a very informative and you can see the distillery in action. They have a variety of liquors to taste and one will be right for you.  more »
  • Drinks are STRONG. If you don't like hard liquor this place won't be for you. Stopped in to get some Grappa but were told it wouldn't be ready for months and nothing even from last year to buy so that...  more »
  • We were directed (by John from Wagner Vineyards) to Damiani Winery and he told us to walk across the drive way to Finger Lakes Distilling and ask for Matt or Glen. John knew that we had toured in Scot...  more »

  • My wife and I were expecting more personality, if that makes sense. We love distilleries for their story and background, their drive behind what they make. You don't get that here. And, yeah, I liked their bourbon. But I like a lot of bourbon. They're also selling too much other stuff. Not my style. Too much going on, nothing amazing. But tastings are cheap.
  • I have to come to the defense of Fingerlakes Distilling - we always stop in when in the neighborhood - it's a great place- unique spirit products - they do a lot with grappa (essentially grape "vodka"... a clear high horsepower product that starts out as grapes)... they do a killer 'moonshine' type clear corn liquor, and a killer bourbon. Don't know if everything is available all the time.. things vary and you're reading a post from a total amateur. But what is totally UNFAIR and MISCONSTRUED is the review from the limo guy implying that they were unwilling to server his group "of color". I MUST CALL TOTAL B.S. ON THAT. That may be the story given to the driver and he was probably sincere with his post - I don't know, but I have ZERO doubt that what happened was someone who had a little too much liquid fun before he/she arrived raised a red flag for the bartender, and that's all. 'Back in the day' when I was playing in local bands, I've seen it myself many times - one person is refused service for being "intoxicato" and the rest of the group gets into "group-think" mode "If you don't serve our buddy here... you're not gettin' our business either... c'mon everyone let's go...." And out they all go - mad. Since in NYS the server can be held personally responsible if they serve someone already intoxicated and something bad happens after they leave, you will find them all to be very cautious these days. But show up (mostly) sober at any of the wineries/breweries/distilleries/cidreries/meaderies and restaurants throughout the region you're going to find all types of people hanging out enjoying themselves and sampling our excellent local products. So please don't base your opinion of Finger Lakes Distilling on one guy's bad experience.
  • I've been in the limo business for 14 years yesterday has truly marked a sad milestone. As much business I bring into this establishment I have never witness such a blatant disrespect to a group. I accompanied my group into the establishment spoke to the hostess about paying for tastings for the group, she was very friendly she explained that she would collect payment if it was with a credit card otherwise in that the bartender will collect all cash. My group proceeded to the bar and not even a second after they sat on the stools the bartender decided that she did not want to serve this group never gave an explanation but claimed that she wasn't going to serve. I am assuming after many years of bringing many people to this establishment this is my first time bringing a group of color into their establishment she did not even think for one moment and just decided not to serve this group. This group was not over intoxicated because we just started our wine to her they're at Hazlet and from there we came to The Distillery. I am very sure that I will no longer recommend this establishment and as I drive my groups I will continue to pass by their establishment and not bring my people there ever again.
  • Everytime time we visit the area my wife has to stop here. You must try their Bloody Mary! It's amazing!
  • Pretty good local made booze. Friendly staff and service, great view. Maybe work on smoothing them out a bit.
