Finger Lakes Distilling

Burdett, NY

Finger Lakes Distilling is proud to have been part of a small group of distillers who brought distilling back to New York State, evidenced in their passion for the handcrafted process of spirit distillation. Their philosophy is to be genuine about everything they do - handcrafting all products from scratch so they can retain control and quality. Their core focus is on whiskeys made in the American tradition, though on a smaller scale. Roughly 90% of the ingredients used at Finger Lakes Distilling are grown locally, including corn, rye, wheat, malted barley, grapes, apples, cherries, berries, maple syrup, and honey.

Yobo Soju

Yobo Soju

a twist on a traditional Korean spirit

750 mL or 375 mL / 23% ABV / 46 proof

Soju (or Schochu in Japan) is traditionally a Korean spirit distilled from rice, or sometimes barley or sweet potatoes. Yobo Soju is distilled from grapes, a nod to the Finger Lakes region where it is produced. Best explained as a very low proof vodka, this spirit provides a crisp and refreshing tasting experience. This clean flavor has just the slightest touch of grape to keep things interesting. More information available at yobosoju.com.
