Locally founded and community owned…
The St. Augustine Distillery is a new business collaborative; a group of locals that share a dream. They wanted to bring the national movement of distilling super premium, small batch spirits to the St. Augustine community. And do do it better than anyone in the world. They knew that if we could bring some of the world’s best distilling experts to St. Augustine — the oldest and coolest small city in America — with access to locally grown sugar cane, wheat, corn, and citrus, they could develop a ﬁner quality spirit than just about any other place in the world.
A Passion for Spirits
“We were fascinated with the idea of making craft spirits. Utilizing local ingredients to produce whiskey, rum, vodka and gin challenged the way we thought about a cocktail. Some of us have spent a signiﬁcant portion of our adult life in pursuit of the perfect adult drink – so we knew this could be fun. And so we did what we do best: talked to people. We talked to the smartest people in the industry we could ﬁnd. Farmers, distillers, engineers, bartenders, consumers—we talked to them all. Armed with great advise and insights, we designed and built what we think is the most beautiful and well-designed craft distillery in America.”
St. Augustine Distillery Co. small batch New World Gin is carefully crafted from the finest botanicals. It has just enough juniper to support good structure, and balanced citrus and spice notes such as cassia bark and angelica. Hand-grinding whole, fresh herbs with a vintage burr mill preserves the freshness and vibrancy of the botanicals in this expression of a classic spirit.
