I just realized that I have not written anything for this blog in several months. In fact, the last time I contributed here there was snow on the ground around the distillery. Shame on me for letting so much time go by! Now, August has arrived and our wet summer is continuing. It seems as though it rains every day. The good news is that our distillations are not weather dependent. We have been busy this summer making vodka, monitoring our aging apple brandy and, most recently, embarking on our quest to make an Adirondack Single Malt. That last project is very exciting, and we are lucky to have found a great source for 100% New York State malt.
The other project this summer has been the installation of a septic system – the last step that must be completed before we open our tasting room. This has been a slow process, but the system is now approved and construction should start this month. We are very excited to open the tasting room and welcome our friends and soon-to-be friends and fans into the distillery.
So stay tuned…I promise to be more diligent on updates and news.
