On a recent weekend trip to St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, we hit up one of the newest spots in town: the St. Augustine Distillery.
Located off one of the main downtown thoroughfares, King St., the Distillery takes up half of an old ice plant on Riberia St. It opened its doors to the public in early 2014 and makes small batches of vodka, gin, rum and bourbon, although only the vodka and gin are for sale at the moment.
Before we actually visited the place, we were able to experience both the gin and vodka in our drinks at the Ice Plant — which occupies the top floor of the building the Distillery is in. Obviously we enjoyed our drinks, because on a breezy Saturday in November, we found ourselves on one of the free tours of the place.
