Sistrunk Marketplace & Brewery’s Phase II has opened its new full production craft distillery, Shady Distillery in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s historic Sistrunk neighborhood. Shady Distillery is part of the Sistrunk Marketplace & Brewery that opened this past September.
Shady Distillery is housed in a 20,000-square foot area adjacent to Sistrunk Marketplace & Brewery. Its namesake and interior theme are inspired by Florida’s long history of controversy, and suspect events. The Distillery reflects on all those considered shady and will be creating craft spirits inspired by these shady moments in time.
Head Distiller Jonny VerPlanck has been creating and collaborating on many different variations of vodka, rum, and bourbons in small batches to release. The first batch is “Shady” Vodka. Distribution of the Distillery’s 12 Mile Rum and Bourbon are soon to follow.
Shady Distillery’s American craft made Shady Vodka is a small batch handcrafted vodka that is seven times distilled from corn and is gluten free and carb free with no sweeteners or additives. The proprietary finishing filtration process has created an 80-proof smooth vodka that is best served “Straight Up Shady”.
