With the availability of many products grown locally, they knew if they could bring some of the very best distilling experts, they could develop some of the finest spirits.
St. Augustine Distillery offers a free tour of their facility to locals and tourists alike, to watch as they mix, mash, cook, and distill small batches of vodka, rum, gin, and whiskey, in their new historically renovated ice manufacturer plant. Guests learn the history of distilling in Florida, view products that are being made and then enjoy samples of their small batch spirits in their tasting room. With no charge and tours every 30 minutes there is room for everyone.
