A move is afoot to distill spirits in Alexandria Bay. Businessman Roger Reifensnyder, who I believe was into swimsuits at one time, is planning the Dark Island Distillery for a spot in the Bay, although the mashing operation will occur at his farm in Hammond, he says.
The Thousand Islands had a history during Prohibition of bootlegging booze from the wets in Canada to the dry United States.
The Bay needs to be more edgy, so let's hope this effort succeeds.
