Nelly’s Apple Brandy, Virginia Pine Gin and Mountain Cane Rum Cocktails were all topics of discussion at the Spring Peek of Nelson’s newest distillery. Devils Backbone Distilling Company began production several weeks ago, but gave an invitation only crowd the chance to sample some of their rum that’s available for sale now in the shop next door. The original Devils Backbone Brewing Company that opened just under 10 years ago is the inspiration for all that’s happened since.
“Being a brewer and moving into distilling, it’s weird how just a line of like 14% alcohol separates two different worlds between beer making and distilled spirits. And I want to blue that line,” Matt Casto tells us. He’s the distiller at DB that’s making the yummy new selections!

Right now DB Distilling Company is opening on the weekends with anticipation of longer hours as the warmer days arrive. An official grand opening is planned sometime in April.
