Slated to open in Chamblee this summer, the Distillery of Modern Art is a 15,000-square-foot space intended for spirit enthusiasts—and spirit enthusiasts who are also enthusiastic about modern art.
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.
