Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives

On The Twelfth Day Of Indie Christmas...

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to metwelve drummers drumming twelve gins a-drumming.

Drumroll, please… Seneca Drums gin made by Finger Lakes Distilling uses wine grapes and 11 botanicals for a standout holiday libation. This show-stopping, parade-worthy bottle uses a grape spirit base which makes for a much richer, more flavorful gin. It’s pretty grape.

The Finger Lakes Distilling story begins in 2007, when Brian McKenzie decided to quit his job as vice president of a community bank and get a whole band of friends together to open a distillery to make their Seneca Drums gin. Since then, FLD has continued to grow and expand their product line without losing the handcrafted, small batch flavors of the Finger Lakes. 

Her heart will thump to the beat of these drums. Thump, thump.

So, to recap:

On the twelfth day of Indie Christmas, my small-batch maker gave to me:

Twelve Gins A-Drumming
Eleven Pipers Pickling
Ten Kings A-Leaping
Nine Bottles Sparkling
Eight Maids Goat Milking
Seven Swanson ginning
Six Birds A-Laying
Five Golden Things
Four Flying Birds
Three French Broads
Two Turtle Loves
And Our Indie Cocktail Made With Pear (whee!)

Success! You did it! Surely, you have won the heart of your true love after these 12 days of lavish gift-giving. We’re so happy for you, but we can’t say we’re surprised. We’ve always known that great food, wine and spirits were the keys to someone’s heart. A sprinkle of Christmas magic definitely didn’t hurt.

What can we say, we love matchmaking! Invite us to your winter wedding? (And don’t forget about us when you need an anniversary gift…) 

May you live hungrily ever after.
