Who We Are
We have taken the art of making quality whiskey and moonshine from the garage to the public. Our goal is to create products "farm to the flask" using locally sourced honey, grains, and fruits to create unique craft spirits and flavors that tantalize your taste buds and delight the soul. We pride ourselves on being a true craft distillery. We don't buy bulk spirits and then put them in a barrel. We prefer to do everything by hand so you know exactly what you are drinking. Thank you for supporting the small guys!
Since it's illegal in the US to possess a still and distill any alcohol, we didn't spend years perfecting the craft and testing out different recipes in a secret garage location away from prying eyes. We didn't build our own still from beer barrels and copper pipe (since the revenuers frown on that type of activity). The story we tell is that we took an advanced distilling class, at a legal distillery none the less, and from that point started building out the dream of opening a distillery that would allow us to provide our quality product to the world. Since 2015 it has been fun finding a location, equipment, and remodeling to create an environment that is relaxed, comfortable, and of course, supplied with quality spirits.
