Lock 1 Distilling Company is a family-owned and -operated NYS grain-to-glass farm distillery, located at Lock 1 of the Oswego Canal in downtown Phoenix, NY. They proudly ferment, distill, bottle, and sell handcrafted spirits made in small batches from local ingredients. Founded in 2015, with desire to craft their own distilled spirits, three cousins brought their skills, craftsmanship, ability, time, and finances together to form a distillery. Lock 1 Distilling Company is the first distillery to open in Oswego County since prohibition. The distillery sits right across the street from Lock 1 of the Oswego Barge Canal. The same canal preferred by bootleggers as the main artery from Canada to NYC during prohibition. With the origins of Lock 1 Distilling Company firmly rooted in a family of metal fabricators, their goal is to produce the finest spirits available using custom-designed, handmade equipment. Just like the spirits they produce, the equipment is handcrafted and designed in-house to yield the highest quality small-batch products possible.
