After several years of being invested in the Old Fourth Ward, brothers Craig and Jeffrey Moore decided that their neighborhood was the perfect place to build “Atlanta’s distillery.” Technically, they didn’t have much competition, since there hadn’t been a legal distillery in Atlanta since 1906. But, since the Moore brothers launched their first vodka in 2014, Old Fourth Distillery has perfectly embodied its title as our city’s landmark distillery. Not only does Old Fourth Distillery dominate the local market, but Craig and Jeffrey also source their ingredients locally, and create each of their products with the devotion to craft that appeals to Atlanta liquor lovers. The Moore brothers followed up 2014’s cane sugar vodka with a signature gin in 2015, and their first bourbon is currently aging and set to be released in 2019. But what we’re most excited about is Old Fourth Distillery’s latest and greatest beverage – Lawn Dart.
Released just a few months ago, this tart and refreshing liqueur were originally designed to be a seasonal summer release, but it gained so much popularity that it’s now available year-round. The liqueur is essentially a ginger and lemon infused vodka and can be enjoyed straight, on the rocks, or in a cocktail. Lawn Dart gets its name from the fact that drinking it is so much fun that it can become dangerous, much like the banned lawn game of the same name. And now, with our handpicked access, when you take a tour at Old Fourth Distillery you’ll be sent home with your very own bottle of the stuff!
At an Old Fourth Distillery tour, you can expect to learn all about the inspiration, history, and development of the facility. Then you’ll receive a thorough education on the entire fermenting and distilling process, from grain and sugar to alcohol in the bottle. One or more of these steps will likely be underway during your tour, so your education will be interactive and hands-on. At the end of the tour, you’ll get to sample the goods. After trying all three of Old Fourth Distillery’s signature beverages (vodka, gin, and Lawn Dart), you’ll be sent home with a souvenir shot glass and your very own bottle of Lawn Dart to enjoy!
