1961 Vodka .::. FLX Made

Teresa Parsons of 1961 Vodka is in-studio to talk about the new spirit distilled in King Ferry, NY on Wednesday, May 7, 2014.

Victor’s Stonehurst Brands LLC Launches 1961 Vodka

Created by former Seneca Falls residents,1961 Vodka is a Nod to the Classic Era.

Rochester, N.Y. (April 14, 2014) — Newly established Victor-based Stonehurst Brands LLC is pleased to announce that it has launched its first product, 1961 Vodka. The ultra-premium vodka is produced from Finger Lakes grown soft, white wheat and carefully handcrafted in small batches. It is distilled in King Ferry, Cayuga County, five times and bottled by hand to ensure a clean, crisp, quality taste and smooth finish.

Former Seneca Falls residents Chris and Teresa Parsons joined three other families to form Stonehurst Brands LLC, which is producing 1961 Vodka, after becoming discouraged that vodka had lost its “classic” taste.

“We were at a neighborhood gathering and were discussing how most vodka is now artificially flavored — from bubblegum, cupcake and even bacon,” said Lisa Ginther, Stonehurst Brands LLC partner. “The idea to create a high quality, clean, crisp, vodka made in America was born.”

1961 Vodka is distilled in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Rich glacial soils and pure artesian waters with a perfect mineral balance ensure a quality taste and smooth finish for the elegant spirit.

“1961 was a single year, but in a way, it was an era all its own. It was a simpler time, with classic tastes,” said Chris Parsons, Stonehurst Brands LLC partner. “Many historic milestones were met in 1961: the homerun race between Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, the first American in space, Kennedy becoming president. The legendary entertainers of the time were Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis Presley. Having our brand represent this classic era is the perfect fit.”

Where to Find 1961 Vodka
1961 Vodka comes in one liter bottles for $26.99-$29.99 and is distributed by Opici Family Distributing. It is available for purchase at retail outlets and restaurants throughout the state.
