SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Distillers in the Finger Lakes are excited about a new state law that allows them to sell bottles of alcohol at county fairs and farmers' markets.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week signed legislation permitting licensed farm distilleries to sell liquor at fairs and markets and at the New York State Fair.
Finger Lakes distillers told the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester (http://on.rocne.ws/QONRKL ) that the new law will expand their sales opportunities.
Bill Martin of Montezuma Winery and Hidden Marsh Distillery in Seneca Falls says he already has reached out to the New York State Fair about showcasing liquors next year. He plans to promote liquors at other markets as well.
