Bold Rock Distillery at the Barrel Barn

First known for its award-winning cider, Bold Rock has now boldly (pun intended) inserted itself into the making of spirits, by distilling delicious grain-to-glass liquors such as bourbon, vodka, cinnamon apple, and spiced peach whiskey. 

Stable Craft Brewing
