Silverback Distillery

Groups of 8 or more need to schedule a reservation 24 hours before the requested date. Call for same-day availability.


Silverback distillery proudly boasts the only Mother-daughter distilling duo in the nation. This dynamic duo has won 24 international awards including World’s Best Award for their Strange Monkey Gin.  

Master distiller, Christine claims her passion for crafting spirits is rooted in family history, particularly from her great grandmother who was known for her bathtub gin.  

You will find the tasting room warm and cozy. The bar staff are friendly and educated, resulting in a more informative tasting experience. They can tell you about the botanicals that make up the crisp aromatic gin, or where Silverback distillery got its name. 

Mini seasonal cocktails are served up at the bar where you can taste new recipes especially paired with Silverback’s vodka, gin, honey rye, wheat whiskey and bourbon. You can check out their website for their delicious recipes. 


Food trucks and Live Music

Silverback offers monthly events like Karaoke, live music, and food trucks. These events sometimes have a particular motif such as last summer’s Harry Potter themed cocktail weekend. Call or check the website for information.

Fall Star Party

Keep an eye out and mark your calendars for the Fall Star Party. Be sure to register for this unique and free event which encompasses an informative night of star gazing through powerful telescopes led by amateur astronomers.

Smoked S'mores!

Who doesn’t love s’mores? This extra special treat starts with smoking your glass on a wooden barrel head. Next pour in the whiskey. Finally, top it all off with a giant marshmallow which is torched for maximum meltiness.
