Almost 18 months after a devastating blaze, Hollerhorn Distilling in Naples, Ontario County, is set to mark its grand reopening.
The May 2022 fire caused significant damage, taking down the tasting rooms, storage, and office spaces, though the distillery itself remained intact.
Owners Karl and Melissa Neubauer emphasized the vital role the Naples community played in their decision to rebuild.
Visitors to the newly reopened Hollerhorn Distilling, originally established five years ago, will notice several modifications. The expanded kitchen aims to be more efficient, reflecting the increasing importance of food at the distillery.
The bar area is now more spacious, and the outdoor porch and deck offer additional cover.
The grand reopening aligns with their annual “Hollerween” party on October 28, featuring live performances and a costume contest. The Sunday Social Happy Hour Series is also slated to resume next month.
