The Alpharetta motor condos and retail village has partnered with founder of Charleston-based Striped Pig Distillery on the new concept.
Destination Development Partners, Inc (DDP) is bringing a yet-to-be-named micro-distillery to The Stables, the developer's forthcoming "motor condos and retail village."
DDP has partnered with Paula Dezzutti to open the 20,000-square-foot concept in Alpharetta.
Dezzutti, the CEO of Charleston-based Striped Pig Distillery and Founder of Local Choice Spirits, will produce craft vodka, gin, tequila, and bourbon out of the distillery.
It will feature a tasting room, retail store, and a distillery museum with a rooftop patio.
“On Thursday, March 7, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to update zoning standards to allow for micro-distilleries in the county," Jeff Beal, managing partner of DDP, in an email told What Now Atlanta Monday.
“We applaud the Commissioners and this community for following the trends set by other municipalities.”
The distillery will be open for tours, tastings, and drinks.
Within the event space, which may be rented for private parties, the plan is to host signature events including the Bourbon Academy, Mixology Presentations, a Dinner Series and Bow-Ties & Bourbon charity fundraiser.
The Stables Motor Condos and Retail Village, at 427 McFarland Pkwy, will feature 147 private garage condos, entertainment, retail and dining within an "automotive-focused, multi-use environment."
