Jersey Spirits is a TRUE craft distillery that creates ultra premium small batch spirits right in Fairfield, NJ. Every batch we produce is handcrafted and we pride ourselves on quality and consistency. Only after we visited and worked with dozens of distilleries (from farm distilleries to commercial distilleries), and developed our own unique processes and recipes, did we focus on opening our doors. Our mission is to develop quality spirits that are smooth and of interesting character for the category of the spirit. We are producing small batches of several different types of spirits because we like and appreciate many types of spirits. We do like our libations neat, but we also enjoy cocktails of all types and we want to share those experiences with you. You will find that we are different, but that is what Craft is all about. We are not trying to be a commercial distiller but we are trying to be your trusted and local supplier of quality alcohol spirits and unique experiences at a Jersey Distillery.
John, Sue and Betty are the co-founders of Jersey Spirits Distilling Co. You will find us in the Tasting Room, as well as the Distillery, doing our best to bring you a great and memorable visit. We offer Tours, Tastings, Craft Cocktails and Bottle Sales in our Tasting Room. By law we cannot sell food but you may bring your own food or order in from a local establishment. On Fridays, there is usually a Food Truck located in our complex lot from 4-9pm. Keep in mind that we are a manufacturer and are located in a manufacturer's complex which is very easy to find. There is signage located at each entrance to direct you in toward our facility.
Jersey Spirits Distilling Company was founded in 2013 and established in February, 2014. The building we are located in was discovered by Sue and John later in 2014 and Jersey Spirits took occupancy in February of 2015. Our Federal license and State licenses were finalized in June, 2015. We began distilling immediately and opened our doors officially in August, 2015. Currently we just finished adding to our distillation capabilty and boast just under 400 gallons of distillation vessels and power. In the next couple of months we should complete our fermentation expansion to 2000 gallons which will allow us to meet our current production goals. We may appear small but we produce the most expansive line of spirits in the state of New Jersey. Our stills run between 5 and 6 days per week and our production processes have never ceased since we opened our doors in 2015.
As our name implies, we are uniquely and proudly New Jersey. John and Betty are lifelong Jersey residents and Sue has lived in New Jersey all her adult life. Our spirits are named after New Jersey places and experiences the co-founders have had in NJ . We feel a deep respect for New Jersey and its' storied landmarks and we wish to preserve and honor them by integrating them within our products. We even enlisted local New Jersey native artist Brett Strothers to create our vision for each and every label for our spirits. These traditions and homage will continue with every new spirit we introduce.
