Hands On Makes It Hand Crafted. Now for the first time you can legally be involved in the making of your own private spirits – whiskey, gin or vodka. For years it has been legal for everyday people to make beer and wine at home, but the personal manufacturing of distilled spirits at home and without the proper federal, state and local licensing and permits is still illegal. In fact, in most states it is still illegal to even own and possess alcohol distilling equipment in your home.
So how can true spirits enthusiasts legally and safely get their hands dirty in making their own distilled spirits? Come to HDC™ – the first and only Craft Distillery in the country offering you the ability to safely and legally be directly involved in your distilled spirits. You choose from our pre-approved recipes (Bourbon, Rye, Vodka, Gin, Single Malt Whiskey), you help run a micro version of our larger still and you help bottle and label the product. Create your spirits and then tell your friends as you sip and share your own spirited story, “This is My Batch.”
We’ll be honest – the “My Batch” program is not for everyone. If you believe spirits can only be made in the south, or on massive continuous still systems that never turn off, or with a predetermined consistency that only comes from mass production, then this is probably not for you. The ”My Batch” program is reserved for people with a little extra time on their hands; spirited individuals yearning to see and experience first hand the skill, science and art of making ultra-small batches of spirits; people focused on locally sourced and individually crafted batches of unique products; and most importantly, people with a yearning to create something bold, new, and different…something that they can call their own and in which they can take pride in sharing with family and friends.
The program takes approximately 3 hours to complete, depending on the number of people involved in each session. Call HDC at 253.509.0008 to make your reservation.
