Decatur approves city’s first distillery

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt October 22, 2013

While Decatur’s City Commission spent much of the Oct. 21 meeting debating a moratorium on new tear-down permits, commissioners also gave an alcoholic beverage license to the city’s first distillery.

City Commissioners approved an Alcoholic Beverage License for Independent Distilling Company LLC, doing business at 7831 East College Avenue.

Last year, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported the new distillery will produce small-batch whiskey and brandy.

We’ll drink to that. Responsibly, that is.
