Westerly’s South County Distillers announced the launch of their inaugural batch of spirits, including vodka and gin. The sister company of Grey Sail Brewing of Rhode Island planned production of spirits this winter, but when COVID-19 hit they quickly turned their production over to making hand sanitizer for frontline workers. “We are extremely excited to share our first batch of spirits, a true labor of love,” said Jennifer Brinton, Co-owner of South County Distillers. “South County Distillers is unique in that we produce everything on-site, starting with the mashing of the grains, fermentation, distilling and to your glass.” South County Distillers Vodka is made from a select blend of rye and wheat, yielding an exceptionally smooth spirit that is dry and crisp with subtle spice notes. South County Distillers Gin begins with select grains as a foundation that culminates with the infusion of a secret blend of botanicals, yielding floral, spice and citrus notes with a classic juniper backbone.
