Thistle Finch Tasting

thistle finch


Representatives of Lancaster-based Thistle Finch Distillery will be on hand to offer free tasting samples of their small batch rye whiskey. They will also explain a bit about the whiskey and their distilling process, plus there might even be some samples of whiskey cocktails! The presentation will begin at 8:15.


The distillery is located in the old Walter Schnader tobacco warehouse. Originally built in 1900, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. In addition to the distillery the building also houses a recording studio and a craft brewery.

Thistle Finch has taken traditional methods and adapted them with modern knowledge and techniques in order to create an un-aged whiskey that will stand on its own. Their Rye is both an award winning end product in its own right, and also the first step of what will be a fine aged whiskey. The rye whiskey is produced in small batches, yielding a dry, spicy flavor, for a traditional spirit full of character.
