SoNo 1420 Celebrates Four-Year Anniversary

By May 31, 2023Connecticut, Top News

SoNo 1420 American Craft Distillers celebrated its four-year anniversary with a themed party called The Hempening at its distillery and tasting room on April 22. SoNo 1420 was founded in 2019 by Ted Dumbauld, who launched the distillery after experimenting with hemp-based whiskey recipes. All of the brand’s ultra-premium, award-winning spirits are crafted in historic South Norwalk on Day Street. Located in a custom-designed industrial building, the distillery highlights its imported copper and stainless steel still, as well as its destination tasting room. The award-winning brand includes whiskeys, gins, vodkas and ready-to-drink cocktails. Guests also enjoyed SoNo 1420’s many Connecticut-made spirits served up in Prohibition-era craft cocktails, plus tastes from its newest offerings: Blaze Cinnamon Flavored Whisky; Threesome Cocktails in Espresso Martini, Margarita and Cosmopolitan; and bottled vodka cocktails in 1420 Transfusion, Strawberry Lemonade Haze and Orange Kush. The brand is self-distributed in Connecticut.
