Prichard’s Distillery will celebrate the grand opening of their second distillery on Wednesday, June 18 from noon until 5 p.m. at Fontanel in Nashville. Prichard’s will host visitors at a log cabin converted into a tasting room and shop on the grounds of Fontanel.
The new Prichard’s production facility is adjacent to the log cabin tasting center and includes a 400-gallon Alembic copper still custom-designed by Vendome Copper and Brassworks in the style of French cognac.
“Our new facility represents a significant expansion of our current distilling capacity and will allow us to keep pace with demand for our whiskies and rums,” states founder Phil Prichard. “Our Alembic still is an extraordinary piece of equipment made entirely to our specifications to enable us to experiment with a new line of small-batch brandies. It’s a dream come true to be based at the Fontanel Mansion, where visitors can discover so much of the true traditions of Tennessee.”
