711 Washington (Suite 200) and will be next to The Blue Note Grill. We are excited to be a part of the DIY Central Park neighborhood. Also, only a block away from Revival Spirits Distilling Co. too - starting our own "distillery row" in Durham. It's going to be fun!

Our gin isn’t from a time-tested recipe passed down over generations from our grandfathers’ grandfathers *. It’s not made from hand-picked botanicals we scoured the earth for or grew organically in our backyard. And it isn’t thirty times distilled over two weeks and then blended with the purest of water from underground tributaries. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Here’s what we’re about.

At Durham Distillery, we love gin. It’s a spirit with personality and versatility. Good gins are like good wines – full of complexity and yet clean, crisp. We believe that a hand-crafted gin could be more than the traditional methods of distillation and carefully selected botanicals. To be sure, the foundation of a refined gin must have those. For us, it’s about taking those traditions and bringing them into the modern age. It’s re-thinking how to make great gin.

Our custom-designed Mueller copper still from Germany will be a thing of beauty and establish our gin’s traditional quality through time-tested vapor distillation. But then, we’re going to have some fun. We take pride that we’re mad (men) scientists.

Our gin will be a modern classic, and we have the expertise to make it a reality.

Get ready Durham. A gin renaissance is coming. It’s time for a new gin of the new south.

* Though a certain grandfather did slip his granddaughter his martini-soaked olives starting at the ripe age of three. Loving gin is in her blood.*
