The distillery—which features the historic Cotton Mill Lofts and Ponce City Market on its bottles—started with just its signature sugar cane-based vodka when it opened in 2014 and has since expanded to include gin and a lemon-ginger liqueur named Lawn Dart.
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.

Old Fourth Distillery, a first for Atlanta since R.M. Rose Distiller closed in 1906, began production on Monday. Three tons of sugar were delivered to 487 Edgewood Ave SE. last week to begin the final stage of a years-long labor of love from brothers Jeff and Craig Moore.
If all goes according to plan, Atlanta’s first distillery since Prohibition will open next May. Brothers Jeff and Craig Moore—who own a technology company, as well as several real estate properties—have secured a twenty-year lease on a 2,500-square-foot building, 487 Edgewood Avenue, in the Old Fourth Ward. There, they plan to distill vodka, gin, and, eventually, whiskey.
