- New Awards! -

Myer Farm Distillers was proud to participate in the first annual Great American International Spirits Competition in Rochester during the last weekend of April! We're happy to announce another five medals to add to our collection, including our first time bringing home two golds! Our stars for this competition were our ever-popular Cayuga Gold, bringing home gold in a special brown spirits category, and our single barrel Four Grain with a gold in the American Craft Whiskey category. Leading up behind to round out our quintet of awards were three bronzes, awarded to: Myer Farm Ginger Vodka in the Infused/Flavored Vodka category, John Myer Rye Whiskey in the American Rye Whiskey category, and the single barrel Bourbon in the Straight Bourbon category.

We'd like to extend our thanks to the judges and congratulations to the Raise A Glass foundation on a successful event!

- Distribution Update - Hey, Illinois! -

We are happy to announce Myer Farm Distillers spirits will soon be available in Illinois! Our friends in the state of IL will soon be able to purchase our products through Big Fish, a free app for selecting and purchasing liquor online in the state of Illinois. Information about their free app (currently only available through the Apple App Store) can be found here. Stay tuned for more information!



- New Release -

After much demand, we've teamed up with Claire at Rue Claire Lavender Farm & Artisanal Chocolate and created a Lavender Vodka! Infused with lavender from Rue Claire, this vodka has lightly floral lavender and rose notes with hints of lemongrass, cedar wood, and buttercream with a slightly spicy white peppercorn finish. We have a few cocktails in the works, ranging from light and bubbly to rich and decadent - come on in, try the vodka, and check out the impending additions to our drink menu! Bottles are available for sale in both 375mL and 750mL sizes.

Stay tuned, some artisanal chocolates featuring this vodka may also be in the works from Claire herself...!





All of us here at Myer Farm Distillers would like to send out a heartfelt THANK YOU! to everyone who came up to our Fifth Anniversary party on the 23rd. The whole afternoon was filled with wonderful music from Virgil Cain - even with a special violin performance from Master Distiller Joe! - and everyone was kept well-fed by the Lake Country Food Truck. Cocktails were wonderfully prepared by Kristin and Dakota, and the tasting room staff kept everyone entertained with tastings and stocked up on spirits for purchase.

Of course, we extend special thanks to not only those who attended but also those who joined us in spirit and all of those who have supported us over the years. It's been a wonderful five years, and we enthusiastically toast to the next five as well!

We are proud to announce another three bronze medals in our collection - Cayuga Gold Barrel Aged Gin, John Myer New York Straight Bourbon - Single Barrel, and our newest addition, J. Earl Myer Honey Lake all won bronzes in their respective classes.







For the Fall 2016 issue of Whisky Advocate, we submitted four of our whiskeys for review: John Myer Four Grain (18 months aged) and our John Myer New York Straight Rye, Bourbon, and Wheat Whiskeys (all 2 years aged).

We're proud of the merits that each whiskey scored, listed below as reviewed by Jeffery Lindenmuth:

John Myer New York Straight Bourbon Single Barrel: 86 points
John Myer New York Straight Rye Whiskey: 85 points
John Myer New York Straight Wheat Whiskey: 84 points
John Myer Four Grain Whiskey: 83 points

The Whisky Advocate rating system lists scores of 80-89 as "Good to very good. Plenty of character and no identifiable flaws. Worth seeking out." We are honored to receive such feedback! View all the details, including Jeffery's tasting notes, here.
