1836 Distilling born from a desire to bring together friends, new and old, to enjoy high-quality craft beverages. Our hand-crafted grain to glass spirits feature local fruits and grains from the heart of the New York Finger Lakes.
Our craft distillery is the sum of the vision of its founders and is more than just water, grains, yeast and time. Our goal is to produce the most satisfying and fun experience at the distillery and will include food, parties and special events. We want you to be part of it.
We will be one of the Finger Lakes’ premier distilleries and a unique destination. Our aim is not to have customers, but rather friends and fans. Our distillery will be the destination of locals and tourists alike.
In addition to be a women owned business, our products will be an extension of our devotion to the craft of distilling—our tastings and spirits will help friends and family create new memories and new friendships. That—along with distilling classes, parties and special events—will insure our continued success.
Craft spirits are taking off: The number of distilleries has increased by approximately 35% per year since 2011, while the craft spirits market has grown 19% per year since 2015 (see Figure 3). And while lagging the overall category penetration of craft beer producers, the U.S. craft spirits market has grown by approximately 20% per year by value since 2012 and is forecast to grow by approximately 15%-20% per year through 2022.
We will create a premium distilling facility focused on crafting high-quality craft spirits and providing a completely unique distillery experience in the heart of the New York Finger Lakes overlooking picturesque Keuka Lake.
