Hollerhorn Distilling, an acclaimed Finger Lakes distillery destroyed by fire in May, plans to convert an historic building in downtown Naples, N.Y., into a shop offering its beverages for sale along with a bar featuring New York beverages. It will also sell other Hollerhorn and cocktail-related merchandise.
Meanwhile, spirits production could resume at the distillery, which is separate from the downtown location, within a few months. Karl Neubauer, the proprietor, hopes to have a tasting room open at the distillery next summer.
Some of the maple liqueurs, fruit brandies and whiskey, including an all-New York state version of a peated malt whiskey, similar to Scotch that were inside the barrels at the distillery survived the fire.
