Before they built their own distillery in Atlanta, University of Georgia friends Jim Chasteen and Charlie Thompson created a recipe for an unaged, ultra-filtered white whiskey that became American Spirit and was made in Charleston, S.C.

Last year, Chasteen and Thompson raised $1.5 million from friends and family to create ASW Distillery on Armour Drive near Sweet-Water Brewing Co. There the duo are producing American Spirit Whiskey along with barrel-aged bourbon and some single-malt products with other grains, including rye and barley.

The distillery is constructed around twin Vendome copper pot stills, which were made in Kentucky, and includes a tasting room and adjoining event space that can be leased. For more information, call 404-590-2279.
