How do you convince a girl that loves her wine that she ought to give vodka, whiskey, and gin a chance? Take her spirit tasting at Myer Farm Distillers on the west side of Cayuga Lake in Ovid, NY – that’s how!
No, I’ve never been a “whiskey girl”. But I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the Blueberry Orange Vodka, John Myer Rye Whiskey, and Myer Farm Gin that I recently got the chance to sample at this fairly new Finger Lakes distillery.
Tastings were 3 for $3.00. A fair price for (what I dare say are) some of the finest spirits I’ve ever tasted. Of the three spirits I sampled, the John Myer Rye Whiskey was my favorite – “pour me another!”
The most unique flavor of the tasting goes to Myer Farm Gin which I actually enjoyed because of the delicious unique herbal finish. There has to be something healing about this gin!
And lastly, I would never turn down a screwdriver mixed with Myer Farm Blueberry Orange Vodka for brunch, or any other time for that matter – delicious!
One more thing worth mentioning. This distillery uses certified organic grain from their own farm which happens to be one of the largest and oldest currently operating in the Northeast.
So, if you are in the Finger Lakes Region and want to get into the spirits, I would suggest adding Myer Farm Distillers to your “must stop” list.
