Distilleries are gaining in popularity these days, and we’re lucky enough to have one just minutes from The Lofts at Ribbon Place. Open in York since March 2016, Old Republic Distillery is known for its small-batch, locally sourced spirits — as well as the fact that it's the first distillery in York since Prohibition!
Currently the distillery is open from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays and noon to 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. During your visit, you can enjoy a tasting of one of their unique creations. They produce a sweet Apple Pie Moonshine, Blueberry Apple Pie Moonshine, vodka, and rum. The local favorite is Love Potion, which comes in two variations, one being black cherry and the other a combo of strawberries and blueberries.
Be sure to schedule your visit during one of their special events, as the distillery often welcomes local bands to play. And don't miss ORD's holiday party on Dec. 17 (we hear Santa will be in attendance!).
