Who are we
Honeoye Falls Distillery is a new producer of handcrafted spirits in the village of Honeoye Falls, NY. We are owned and operated by an independent group of motivated partners from Honeoye Falls and Syracuse. Our goal is to represent the best tastes our region has to offer. To achieve this we will source all of our ingredients locally in order to give our customers a true grain-to-glass experience. We strive to provide handcrafted spirits in small batches without compromise.
Our SpiritsInitially we will be producing three classes of spirits. First is our “Frozen Falls” Vodka. This craft Vodka is made in honor of the annual freezing-over of the Honeoye Falls. Truly a sight to behold, the water halts to a standstill…frozen in the sharp bitter cold of a Western New York winter. When we think of premium handcrafted Vodka, we want to represent a similar experience. Clean, crisp and pure. Distilled from local grains, this Vodka represents a moment frozen in time where you can contemplate the serene landscape...and tastes…before you.
How you can helpHoneoye Falls Distillery has been in the works for almost two years. Currently, we hold conditional state approval and our federal license is on track. We are in the process of constructing our production facility so that we can bring you our craft spirits as soon as possible, but we need your help! .... Every dollar raised will go into the design and construction of our tasting room. We want you to be able to come visit our facility and enjoy our craft spirits on site with us. To do that we need to raise $20,000 in order to offset some of the costs of the tasting room. For every dollar donated up to our goal of $20,000, we will match.
Our kickstarter goal is to raise $20,000 USD. This will go directly towards constructing and getting our tasting room up and running.
Our stretch goal is $30,000 USD. If we hit this we will be able to apply for our tavern license and be able to serve NY State beer and wine in our tasting room. This will be in addition to our cocktails we will already be serving.
We want to show you how much we appreciate your donation by giving something back to you in return.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk that comes with opening up a distillery are all of the approval and licensing processes. We are happy to report that much of this risk is minimized as we have already received our conditional NY State license and the Federal TTB licensing is tracking to plan. We have met all approvals from the village of Honeoye Falls and have gotten nothing but support and welcoming from the community.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
