New York is far bigger than just New York City— although I called the city home for ten years, including when I started this site. New York Gin was one of my first big focuses as I sought to cover everything happening in my home state.
Many people don’t realize that New York State is a large agricultural region. The upstate region is home to many wineries including Finger Lakes and Myers Farm that distill gins too. Grain-to-glass (or fruit-to-glass) features prominently in New York Gin as well because upstate is a great apple growing region too— gins like Fly Creek put these home grown products to work.
