It's a beautiful July 4th weekend in Lancaster and it's the last 2 days of our $7 summer celebration week! We have a bunch of fabulous new summer cocktails up on the menu. This one is the Cucumber Rose: our rose infused vodka, homemade cucumber syrup and a splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice. Like all the others, $7 this weekend only.

Our new summer menu is here and as you can see from what Jordan cooked up today, we have quite a few new flavors at the tasting room. This menu will run throughout the summer, but THIS WEEK ONLY...all cocktails will be $7 dollars to celebrate how excited we are for you to try the creations we have mixed up. So stop in to the tasting room Wednesday through Sunday and sip something special.

It's that time of year again, time for a menu change here at the tasting room! We will be transitioning to a larger summer menu starting Wednesday the 29th! This is very exciting as we will be brining in some new flavors but it does mean it's the last weekend for several of our spring cocktails. So if you're a fan of the RW Collins, Rose Garden or Flippin Juice...stop on out and send them off in style.

We are excited to announce a new weekly special here at the tasting room, Thursdays are now Daiquiri night! That's right, every thursday you can now sip on a classic Daiquiri for just $7, perfect when paired with Wacker's dollar tacos. Don't worry you purists, this is no blended mixer...we are highlighting the roots of the Daiquiri as first set forth in David A Embury's influential 1948 work The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. White rye (in place of white rum), lime juice and sugar shaken up just right. So stop in to the tasting room and reacquaint yourself with this classic cocktail. Available each and every Thursday.

Sunday Bloody Mary Sunday...I'm pretty sure that is what Bono meant to say. Either way Jordan's behind the bar today and he's running $7 Bloody Mary specials all day! Go classic with our Penn Square Vodka, love our rye? Have a Bloody Martin. Really need some Market Alley Gin in your life? Dive into a Bloody Bathtub... Tasting room is open 12-8pm.

ATTENTION RACE FANS! There will be a very special drink featured for tonight's derby. That's right, for one night only, starting at 6PM we will be having our first ever Julep special in the tasting room. $6 gets you a one of a kind Grant St Julep featuring a specially made 'cheater whiskey'. Cheater whiskey is an old distilling tradition of using ingredients such as: parched wheat, nutmeg, smoked tea etc to replicate the color, nose and flavor of a significantly aged whiskey. So come out to the distillery on this beautiful day and taste our wares. Remember the race starts at 6:30pm and the Juleps start at 6:00pm so come in early and stay till they're gone!
