Southern Indiana Distilleries

If you love farm-to-table dining, why not try spirits that are grain-to-glass? 

Venture north of the Ohio River, and you’ll find Starlight Distillery, an operation where spirits and brandies are made from grains and fruit grown on-site. Starlight Distillery is a production of the Huber family, which has been farming here for more than a century. Wine sales began in the 1970s, and spirit sales followed. They offer on-site tours and tastings. 

You’ll find a “Big Red Manhattan” at Portage House restaurant in Jeffersonville, which is made with Big Red, a cream soda that Hoosiers love. You’ll find house-made bitters and syrups at The Exchange and Brooklyn & The Butcher. 

If you’re looking to savor a cigar with your spirits, visit Match Cigar Bar in Jeffersonville.
