The Finger Lakes Distilling story begins in 2007, when Brian McKenzie of Elmira, N.Y., met Thomas Earl McKenzie of Monroeville, Ala., at a craft distiller’s conference. The two men aren’t related, but they did discover they shared a passion for high-quality, distilled spirits. Brian, a former bank vice president, had experience in finance and was interested in starting his own business. Thomas Earl’s background included wine-making, brewing, farming and consulting for distilleries. It was a fateful meeting – and a great match of talents to start a new distillery. Today, they are well on their way to realizing a dream of working with good friends and family to create products they can offer with pride.
