Here at Mutineer HQ, we are all about cheering on beverage entrepreneurs and their efforts to bring something new to the table. Kickstarter is a great resource for people to bring their ideas to life. The latest project to capture our attention is from Old 4th Distillery & Tasting Room out of Atlanta, GA.
5 Atlanta locals–brothers Jeff and Craig Moore, along with their pals Gabe Pilato, Justin Gray, and Andy DuVall–are working to open the first distillery in the city of Atlanta since Prohibition. Located right in the heart of Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward, Old Fourth Ward Distillery plans to produce vodka, gin, whisky, and bourbon. In August, the distillery received their federal permit to operate the still and they are on track to receive their state and city permits once the build out of the facility has been completed which is estimated to be around February 2014. And the stills? They’re still in German being custom made, and the cost of those is what the Old Fourth Ward team need help with.
Just 3 days left to fund their project, which is currently sitting at 81% funded. Interested in backing their project? Check them out!
