Go beyond beer and discover Asheville’s thriving craft distillery scene. Since the era of pre-prohibition, our mountains have fostered a culture of craft beverage enthusiasts and distilled spirits are no exception. Whether you’re looking to sip on a small batch whiskey or enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail, our local distilleries offer an option for every craft spirit aficionado.
Dalton Distillery is downtown Asheville’s first legal distillery that produces small-batch, top-shelf spirits by hand. The master distillers ferment, distill, age, blend and bottle each spirit in-house, bottle by bottle. Specializing in Caribbean-influenced Vodka and Rum, they bring unique handcrafted, small-batch liquors with a core focus on quality.

Eda Rhyne Distillery produces exceptional small batch spirits that capture the creative, hardworking spirit of Southern Appalachia.
