Philip McDaniel, one of the owners of the St. Augustine Distillery, has quickly become one of the most well-known people in St. Augustine. In the beginning, he and his partners set out on a mission to create a true Florida craft distillery, capable of producing a quality product that would rival even the biggest of name brands. After many months of planning, and many months of brewing, it’s safe to say that the St. Augustine distillery is on the right track.
As of last week, St. Augustine Distillery has entered into an agreement with Premier Beverage Company, and their product can now be found in 160 restaurants and 43 stores state wide. McDaniel and his crew are showing no signs of slowing down. Their recent release of their second spirit, "New World Gin," has had extremely positive feedback from even the most seasoned of gin drinkers. At $32 dollars per bottle, McDaniel knew the product had to be special. Producing local spirits with goods from local farms is definitely not the cheapest way to go, but it definitely provides a new experience. Each sip you take of one of their spirits reflects hours of labor from real people working tirelessly to create a true hand crafted spirit.
The St. Augustine Distillery has quickly become one of St. Augustine’s most popular attractions. We here at Carriage Way Bed & Breakfast love to support local business, and we are sure that this attraction will continue to grow and improve on a daily basis.
