New Deal Distillery


This spirit-factory started as a small-time operation using a short copper still that remains on the premises (it's tucked away on a shelf). Now the facility also operates a tasting room and distillers' workshop. Take a tour, then stick around for a cocktail using one of the distillery's many spirits – New Deal's Hot Monkey Vodka is a spicy crowd-pleaser.

You can also get a 'passport' ( that lets you visit all the distilleries along 'Distillery Row,' a string of eight in the area.
