Find the Perfect Distillery on Seneca Lake
Finger Lakes Distilling
Finger Lakes Distilling is a fantastic attraction on the southeastern side of Seneca Lake. Any day of the week (besides holidays), you can try some of the best spirits in the Finger Lakes. Made from all-natural, local ingredients, their vodka, gin, brandy, liqueur, and whiskey will have you feeling fantastic! You can also try drinks from their extensive menu of flights and cocktails. It’s not on their main menu, but ask for the Seneca Cookout Cooler to feel like you’re at a cookout on a bright and sunny day.
They have two touring options you can consider. On Saturdays from May to November, you can take a Mckenzie Whiskey or Barrel House Flight tour of the production area, barrelhouse, and bottling operations!
Drink like an Irish when you visit O’Begly Distillery on the southwestern side of the lake. You wouldn’t expect to find Irish whiskey in this tiny building in Dundee, but low and behold, this is where you’ll find the pot of gold! Every ingredient at O’Begleys is of the highest quality, and their whiskey is made from local grains. Choose from a long list of unique whiskeys when you visit any day between noon and 5 p.m.
Idol Ridge Winery and Alder Creek Distillery
