Dozens of Florida distilleries will soon become stops on a new tour across the Sunshine State, featuring members of the Florida Craft Spirits Association with open doors to whiskey enthusiasts from around the world.
“We are thrilled to announce our distillery trail, which has come to fruition in only our second year as an association,” said David Cohen, president of the Florida Craft Spirits Association, in a prepared statement. “We are also happy to report that we have had 100-percent retention of our members from the previous year, which speaks to the strength of our industry in this state. With the help of Visit Florida, we will make the Florida Distillery Trail one of the best in the country.”
The Florida Distillery Trail consists of 39 distilleries spanning from the panhandle to the southernmost point of the state.
Along the trail, visitors will get a chance to experience the varied landscapes, landmarks, and the blend of culture that make up Florida.
To embark on the trail, explorers can get a free passport booklet at any participating distillery location. Along the trail, those on tour will collect stamps in the special booklet at each stop on the route.
The trail can be completed distillery-by-distillery or in regions at a time.
