BY: Senator KENNEDY

COMMENDING Tommyrotter Distillery upon the
occasion of winning the Chairman's Trophy for its
Cask Strength Bourbon-Barrel Matured Gin at the
Ultimate Spirits Challenge

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
commend the achievements of businesses which contribute substantially to
the economic health and vitality of the communities of the great State
of New York; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
commend Tommyrotter Distillery upon the occasion of winning the
Chairman's Trophy for its Cask Strength Bourbon-Barrel Matured Gin at
the Ultimate Spirits Challenge; and

WHEREAS, The Ultimate Beverage Challenge strives to create and
establish a new and higher standard of evaluation for spirits and wine
which provides accurate, meaningful and useful results in recognizing
and promoting the quality of beverage alcohol products; it accomplishes
this by the integrity of its people and approach, innovative and
exacting methodology, and through the credibility of its results; and

WHEREAS, Tommyrotter Distillery's Cask Strength Bourbon-Barrel
Matured Gin was awarded 95 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge,
earning an Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation and the Chairman's
Trophy; and

WHEREAS, The judges at this year's challenge truly appreciated
Tommyrotter Distillery's American gin, describing the winning entry as
an intense nose which is driven by Szechuan pepper, coriander, rosemary,
and dried yuzu; the palate is hot at first, but then flavors of dried
cherries, cranberries, and chai balance the intensity of the alcohol;
and

WHEREAS, Founded by Bobby Finan and Sean Insalaco in July of 2015,
Tommyrotter Distillery is headquartered in a 116-year-old factory in
Buffalo, New York; and

WHEREAS, Using New York State-sourced products, Tommyrotter
Distillery makes craft vodka, gin, and whiskey, playing a key role in
developing Buffalo's craft beverage industry; and

WHEREAS, After much hard work and tireless efforts by the owners,
Tommyrotter Distillery was the proud recipient of the Chairman's Trophy
for its powerful but balanced spirit, Cask Strength Bourbon-Barrel
Matured Gin; and

WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body
acknowledges Tommyrotter Distillery's success, recognizes its
contributions to the local and State economies, and extends its highest
commendation to the business and its employees, fully confident that, in

its future, it will enjoy the same sparkling success which has so
characterized its past; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Tommyrotter Distillery upon the occasion of winning the
Chairman's Trophy for its Cask Strength Bourbon-Barrel Matured Gin at
the Ultimate Spirits Challenge; and be it further

RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Bobby Finan and Sean Insalaco, Owners, Tommyrotter
Distillery.
