St. Augustine Distillery3/30/2016
Happy Humpday! I am definitely already dreaming about the weekend. Which also leaves me dreaming about my next weekend getaway! A few weeks ago I headed up to St. Augustine for the day for my job and my few hours there definitely has me itching to go back. One of the places I definitely want to go back and enjoy a little more is the St. Augustine Distillery and Ice Plant Bar.
The St. Augustine Distillery is located inside a historic ice plant in St. Augustine located just down the street from the San Sebastian Winery and within walking distance of "downtown" St. Augustine. While the distillery is brand new, the building it's in was built over 100 years ago so not only do you get to check out some amazing craft spirits and cocktails but you also get to enjoy the beauty and the history of the building. Tours last about 30 minutes and are free so it's a great way to beat the heat for a bit and get a taste of the local flavor. Everything distilled at St. Augustine Distillery is 100% Florida local which is part of what I love about them so much. It's really a great way to learn about and watch how they mix, mash, cook and distill small batch vodka, rum, gin and whiskey.
Once you're done with the tour and samples but not quite ready to venture out into the heat again, head up stairs and check out Ice Plant for a quick (and delicious) bite to eat or some super yummy craft cocktail in one of the cutest spaces I've ever seen!
Moral of the story, if you're looking for something to do and looking to try some delicious award winning spirits you should definitely check out St. Augustine Distillery!
