The new distillery’s construction on the site of the Tamworth Inn is progressing nicely.
The exterior of the westernmost section of the old inn is being restored to appear much as it did (the interior will be gutted), and in exactly the same location. Mr. Grasse hasn’t decided what this building will house, but he mentioned the possibility of a small pub & restaurant featuring locally sourced foods.
The other two sections to the east will be torn down completely. A new building in a similar architectural style will be constructed to the east of the preserved building, with a twenty foot space (required fire separation) in between the two. The new buildings will house a distillery and tasting room, a small ‘parfumerie’ for production of perfumes, botanicals and essential oils, and a shop space. Pollution control and water use for these businesses have been carefully addressed.
The Tamworth distillery is going up nicely
