Stephen Mann, the owner of MannCave Distilling, whose future home is located near Jackson’s Mill on Left Millstone Road recently gave a tour to detail the progress made at the location as it nears completion.
During the tour Mann noted that the water filtration systems were currently in the process of being installed and that he was awaiting the installation of gas hook ups so the boiler could be installed.
Mann also noted that a 24-foot still for the business was currently under construction by Corson Distilling Systems in Boise, Idaho and the current target completion and delivery dates are in January, 2018. Mann also touted the fact that the still was 100 percent American made including both labor and materials.
Mann also showed off the water source for the distillery which is located on the hill above the property. Mann said that the water plant was initially planned to be closed to the public, but could be open for tours in a future once the business was off the ground.
The business which will distill whiskey, moonshine, vodka, and gin, has a target opening month of February, 2018.
