Chemist Spirits Distillery was born from a small family still and many hours of moonshining in the mountains of Western North Carolina. This female-led distillery strikes a perfect balance between the traditional craft and the modern American spirits movement. The award-winning craft spirits produced in Asheville’s South Slope brewery district began with the flagship American Gin, produced in traditional copper alembic stills over direct fire. This was followed by a diverse portfolio of innovative gin variations and collaborations with local breweries and cideries. Chemist Spirits Single Malt Whiskey is made from locally sourced malted barley and released in small batches. The adjoining 3 story cocktail lounge, Antidote, with its 1920’s pharmacy vibe, is the perfect compliment.
