Why did you choose this particular place for your distillery?
AW: We knew we wanted to have an urban distillery here in the city… because we’re big fans of Baltimore. We… really love the smallness of Baltimore, the charming aspects, the high quality of life, the neighborhood feel. Highlandtown has a really nice mix of industrial, residential, commercial zones… and it’s very close to the Inner Harbor and the Interstate.
Where do you tell out-of-towners to visit after they leave the distillery?
AW: When out-of-town visitors come to Old Line and they’re looking for a place to go afterwards, we recommend our friends up the street at Monument City Brewing but of course there’s Fell’s Point, Canton, Federal Hill, and the Inner Harbor which are all very tourist-friendly.
I’m surprised by the amount of people we see from Philadelphia, D.C., New Jersey, New York. People just come down for the day looking for something to do particularly on game days, if there’s a football game or baseball game. They’ll come to the distillery, try some spirits and have a cocktail and off they go to watch the game.
