Five years after launching Atlanta-based ASW Distillery, the pair finally ran liquor through their custom copper stills for the first time last month.
At 487 Edgewood Avenue, the co-founders of Old Fourth Distillery are kept busy producing their eponymous vodka—and putting the finishing touches on the recipe for a gin they plan to release some time in December. Crafting a spirit from scratch in-house has proven far more time-intensive than the partners had imagined when they started two years ago, opening the first distillery in the Atlanta city limits since 1907. But the outcome has exceeded their most intemperate expectations, both in terms of sales and taste.
