The building that is now The Distillery opened as Kentucky Distilling Co. in 1904, which closed during Prohibition and became a pharmacy.

The Savannah Distillery Ale House opened in 2008, and is modeled after a 1895 saloon. Their motto is “no crap, just craft!”, so you know they only stock new and high-quality craft brews.
