Distill This

One of the great new “stops” in the Finger Lakes Region is Finger Lakes
located on the east side of Seneca Lake, just a few miles outside of
Watkins Glen.  It is the region's only stand-alone distillery and focuses
exclusively on distilled spirits. As a New York State Farm Distillery, they turn
to local farmers for the raw material for their products.  
Rosemary’s Legacy
has developed their
Distill This Package to feature the great new spirits from
this local distillery.

-  check-in to Rosemary’s Legacy and relax by the fire (winter months) or by
the pool (summer months) with a local cheddar cheese & crackers.

- Drive to Finger Lakes Distilling (about a 12 minute trip along beautiful
Seneca Lake) and receive a private tour of the Distillery, free tasting and a
free bottle of Glen Thunder Corn Whiskey.  Glen Thunder is a fine-tuned,
true American corn whiskey, made to honor one of the world's greatest
raceways, Watkins Glen International.
Glen Thunder is a fine-tuned American corn whiskey, made to honor one of the world's greatest
Watkins Glen Internatinal.  The mellow corn flavors gives it the feel of a smooth ride , but don't be
fooled, because it' still got plenty of horsepower.  The aroma of this whiskey is reminscent of
pulling back the husk from an ear of sweet summer corn.  On the palate, it's crisp , yet smooth,
with toasty carmelized notes and a meaty finish - think cornbread with bacon!
- Return to Rosemary’s Legacy to a Finger Lakes Distilling themed dinner.  
-        Breakfast in the morning

Current Menu Selections:


Vintner’s Vodka Shrimp Cocktail – large shrimp marinated in Vintner’s Vodka,
orange and lemon juices, onion, a touch of hot pepper sauce and cilantro.  Served
in a hollowed sweet pepper.
Vintner's Vodka has a smooth, neutral taste - just what you would expect  from a typical vodka.   
What sets Vintner's Vodka apart, however, is that it retains a bit of grape character.It's made
using a process that combine the practices of the winemaker (the vintner) and the master
distiller.  In our custom-built copper still, we distill a blend of local grapes (including those from
our own vineyard).It is fruity and floral, with notes of orange blossom, cantaloupe, vanilla and
lychee.  On the palate, it is smooth and silky, with a medium body and a persistent, spicy finish.

Glen Thunder Spinach Salad Flambe – tossed baby spinach, hard boiled eggs, and
freshly cooked bacon topped with a flaming dressing of Glen Thunder Corn Whiskey, malt
vinegar, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce.

Seneca Drums Tossed Salad – fresh tomatoes, black olives, sliced onions, and finely
shredded lettuce topped with a dressing of Seneca Drums Gin, virgin olive oil, castor sugar and
black pepper.
Seneca Drums Gin, like the phenomenon for which it is named,  is an expressive, yet
harmonious, London-style dry gin, distilled from our own local grape spirit and a signature blend
of 11 botanicals.  The end result is a gin that is sure to resonate with both new  gin drinkers and
traditionalists.    Seneca Drums Gin is zippy and fresh,  with notes of citrus peel, juniper,
cucumber, clove and light anise.

Cassis Lemon Sorbet – lemon ice in a stemmed glass topped with Cassis Liqueur is the
perfect palate cleanser.
Cassis Liqueur is made in a traditional manner -   by soaking local black currants in our own
grape-neutral spirit, then sweetening to taste.  This robust brandy has notes of cranberries,
blackberries and raspberries. It's juicy on the palate, striking a perfect balance between tart and
sweet, with a finish that lingers.

New York Steak with McKenzie Whiskey Mustard – the king of steaks topped with a
special flaming sauce using shallots, whole-grain mustard and McKenzie Rye Whiskey.   (May
substitute the strip steak with a filet.)
McKenzie Rye Whiskey is made from NYS grain and distilled using old-time techniques. We age
in new charred quarter casks and finish in sherry barrels from local wineries.  The sherry
balances the spiciness    
of the rye and also gives a nod to the wine region where this whiskey is produced.  Notes of
orange peel, cardamom, mint and butterscotch.   Exceptionally smooth for a young whiskey.

Seneca Drum Grilled Salmon – fresh Pacific Coho Salmon marinated overnight in Seneca
Drums Gin, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, and pepperoncini peppers.

Juniper Pork with Blueberry Liqueur and Lemon Sauce – thinly sliced pork
tenderloin rubbed with crushed juniper berries and garlic, then pan fried until lightly browned.  
Topped with a sauce of blueberries, Blueberry Liqueur, and fresh lemon juice.

Blueberry Liqueur is the perfect combination of our own distilled spirts and delicious blueberries
grown right here in the Finger Lakes.      

Raspberry Trifle – In a tall stemmed glass,  fresh sponge cake is soaked with Raspberry
Liqueur, then topped with fresh raspberries and real whipped cream, then one more layer of
The Raspberry Liqueur is a fusion of our own distilled grape brandy and Mom's favorite,
raspberries. We use a combination of local black and red raspberries, some from our own farm
overlooking Seneca Lake.   

Chocolate Chocolate Crepe with Cherry Liqueur - a chocolate crepe with a rich
chocolate mousse filling served with small glass of Finger Lakes Distilling’s new Cherry
Cherry Liqueur is made by soaking fresh, local cherries in our grape neutral spirit.  It remains
very true to the flavor of the fruit, with a natural sweetness that is balanced by the tart
characteristic of sour cherry.
