Georgia is getting a second New Realm Brewing Company. The Atlanta-based company Thursday announced plans to open a distillery in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District this spring, at 120 Whitaker Street.
The 12,000 square foot, three-story facility was formerly home to Savannah Spirits Speakeasy Lounge, and the turnkey space is already equipped with a distillery, brewery, restaurant, tasting room, rooftop patio, and dedicated private event spaces.
In 2019, New Realm began making London Dry Gin, Tennessee Style Bourbon, and Gluten-Free Vodka, which New Realm has been selling on-site in the Company’s flagship Atlanta location.
“Over the past year, we have seen tremendous demand for our spirits and craft cocktail offerings in Atlanta and are excited to open a new facility dedicated to creating best-in-class distilled products,” Carey Falcone, Co-Founder and CEO of New Realm, said in the announcement. “The Savannah distillery will allow New Realm to expand and improve its distilled product offering, increase innovation, and provide additional opportunities for our customers to experience New Realm’s hand-crafted beers brewed by renowned brewmaster Mitch Steele.”
New Realm’s new craft distillery and restaurant is expected to add approximately 100 full-time employees in the local Savannah market.
The Savannah distillery and restaurant will be New Realm’s third location alongside its flagship brewery and restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, at 550 Somerset Terrace NE, and production brewery and restaurant in Virginia Beach, Virginia, at 1209 Craft Lane.
