Tommyrotter Distillery opened its doors in July 2015. Founded by Bobby Finan and Sean Insalaco, the distillery resides in a 116-year-old factory in Buffalo, NY’s historic Hydraulic manufacturing district.
Tommyrotter Distillery is a community of minds and palates, a haven for those burdened with the tenacity of an independent spirit. The creative process is inspired by the Tommyrotters’ Club, a band of rebellious artisans in the early 20th century who broke rank from the Arts and Crafts Movement to create for creation’s sake. They sought adventure, mischief and inspiration in nature. Honoring their industrious spirit of back, hand and heart, Tommyrotter Distillery crafts small batch spirits using New York State grains.
Tommyrotter distills, produces, bottles, labels and packages all of their products on their 2,700-square foot production floor. With the help of a small crew of rotating distillery workers, their humbly sized team manufactures the entire annual output right in downtown Buffalo.
Award winning spirits.
Co-owners Robert Finan and Sean Insalaco have harnessed their passion to create a portfolio of innovative products to keep the independent spirits category alive and fresh.
Based in Buffalo, New York
Tommyrotter Distillery opened to the public July of 2015 and now produces an innovative range of products. The distiller relies on handcrafted processes every step of the way, from crushing juniper berries for gin, to hand-bottling every finished batch. Tommyrotter Distillery takes refuge inside the old F.N. Burt Box Company factory, located in Buffalo’s NY’s Hydraulic District, the city’s first manufacturing district.
