Distilleries & Craft Cocktails
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’s two SoIN locations in Jeffersonville and New Albany.
