Lake George Distilling Company was founded in 2012.  We took our love of quality hand crafted spirits and decided to create our own. We take the time to select the best local ingredients from the region and use them to hand craft our spirits in small batches.  We hope you will enjoy our products as much as we enjoyed creating them for you.

Robin

John

Robin holds an MBA from Ellis College and has always wanted to open her own business.  After her experience of being downsized, she decided it was time to create something that would be dependent on her own blood, sweat, and tears; something that could not be taken away from her and her family. When John came to her with the suggestion that they open a micro-distillery she jumped at the idea. She is now handling the business end of things so John can concentrate on what he does best ... making great artisan spirits.

John has worked for the same telecommunications company for the last 29 years. In his spare time he has dabbled in beer and wine making and with John’s logic, the next step of course would be distilling. With that in mind he began his research on the subject. Over the last ten years he has devoured anything and everything distilling. He has read books, taken courses and attended seminars that have given him the knowledge that is required to distill quality hand crafted spirits. He has also done extensive tastings of some good and some great spirits and will continue with his research.
