I cannot believe its September! The kids are back in school and the temps are beginning to drop. But before the leaves turn, I wanted to check in and recap our summer activities. It was quite a summer.
Sarah has had a terrific summer at the Plattsburgh Farmer’s Market. The market continues to expand, and Sarah was there almost every Saturday offering tastings and selling our products. It was awesome to see second and third time customers throughout the season! We also had fun and success at the Plattsburgh Cocktail Walks, the Whiskey Run in Wilmington and the ADK Craft Beverage Festival at Elf’s Farm this summer.
When not at the farmer’s market, Sarah was busy marketing our product to restaurants and liquor stores. We are now in seven restaurants and two liquor stores. It is very exciting to see our creations being sold at retail and crafted into amazing cocktails!
While Sarah was out introducing our vodka, whiskey and brandy, I was back at the distillery most of the summer.
Along with mashing and distilling, I was able to construct a walk-in beer cooler, an outdoor stage for music and other entertainment, a firepit area, and work on our landscaping.
While it was sometimes frustrating to be constructing and not solely distilling, I think all of these new features are going to add to the fun our guests have at the distillery and, hopefully, keep them coming back for more.
So now we head into Fall 2018. Our tasting room is open, and we are waiting for your visit. We also may have a surprise or two up our sleeves before winter. Stay tuned.
