I was at a committee meeting in Sandy Springs last August when I first heard about a group of doctors who had established GEORGIA’S FIRST CRAFT DISTILLERY, Thirteenth Colony, in Americus. I could hardly wait to learn more…
No mass production, No urban style, big plant operations… just craftsmen and friends.
The Distillery produces two labels – Plantation Vodka and Southern Vodka. From what I understand, Plantation is usually sold south of a line from Columbus, Macon and Savannah; Southern Vodka, north of that line.
The bottle in my freezer is Southern Vodka. We reward ourselves with a wee nip every then and now. Here’s hoping Thirteenth Colony Distilleries becomes the first of many handcrafted spirits distilleries in Georgia.
