Is the distillery pet-friendly?

While we love our four-legged friends and all of us are dog or cat owners here, it's just not possible for them to be in the distillery. We always allow service dogs.

During warm weekends, the garage door is usually open and we'll keep out a bowl of water outside near the benches for them!

Do you have a gift shop?

Stop in during our open hours, to purchase that special gift. Our retail gift shop has a lot of options including cocktail shakers, bitters, cocktail glasses, mixing glasses, shirts, hats, tonic - and much more!

You can also search for an item in our Shop for Pickup online store!

When did Durham Distillery open?

Back in 2013, Durham Distillery was born, but the journey to craft our incredible Conniption Gins and Damn Fine liqueurs took a couple of years due to legalities. We couldn't pour you a taste until 2015, and that's also when our fabulous tasting room opened its doors. But the most recent addition to our vibrant establishment happened in 2020 with the grand opening of the Corpse Reviver Bar & Lounge!

How many people does Durham Distillery employ?

As of Fall of 2023, we have a team of 25 here! We have been growing into many different states and are proud that we have team members in New York, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia with more growth to come soon!
