Atlanta Braves fans will have another reason to show up early or stay late after games. A new distillery is scheduled to open at the Battery Atlanta later this year.
ASW Distillery will open its third local distillery at the home of the Braves. The new space will feature a tasting room, a production facility to house stills, a small batch bottling operation and a cocktail program.
ASW was the first whiskey distillery in the City of Atlanta since the American Prohibition. The manufacturer released Fiddler Bourbon and Resurgens Rye in addition to its award-winning Duality Double Malt.
“The Atlanta Braves have been such an integral part of Georgia history for over fifty years," said Jim Chasteen, CEO of ASW Distillery. "The state has likewise been home to a rich tradition in whiskey-making that we’ve been excited to help revive, Bringing these two traditions together is like a dream come true for us. The Braves Development Company has been an absolute joy to work with, and we are beyond thrilled about this partnership.”
ASW Distillery will offer The Battery Atlanta’s visitors public tasting hours and walk-up tour experiences. The cocktail programs will educate attendees on how to prepare delicious whiskey cocktails and the history behind them. Known for its award-winning portfolio of spirits, ASW will introduce and distill a new vodka and gin onsite at The Battery Atlanta.
“Our campus offers an ideal setting to connect our fans and guests with ASW’s unique offerings and will serve as a place to forge new relationships within Braves Country and the local community,” said Jeremy Strife, executive vice president of development for the Braves Development Company. “We continuously strive to bring curated and quality partners that enhance the overall experience at The Battery Atlanta, and the addition of ASW reinforces that commitment.”
The 3,514 square-foot space will be located across from Good Game powered by Topgolf Swing Suite on the corner of Legends Place and Battery Avenue and is scheduled to open in late spring.
