Deep Ellum has been a hub for craft breweries and cocktails for many years but it is also home to one of the best small-batch spirit distilleries in the metroplex! Deep Ellum Spirits, formerly called the Deep Ellum Distillery, is a home for wild hearts, free spirits, and good times. The team at our Business of the Week is just getting started bringing great spirits to Deep Ellum.
Opened in 2017, Deep Ellum Spirits first started out producing a premium small-batch vodka with plenty of specialty infusions and cocktails you could only get in their warehouse tasting room. John Reardon, the founder of Deep Ellum Brewing Co., has always been inspired by Deep Ellum’s rough and tumble past, its history, and the spirit of entrepreneurship that has infiltrated the neighborhood. By opening Deep Ellum Spirits, John wanted to bring something trailblazing and new to the neighborhood and continue upon the tradition of creativity and risk-taking Deep Ellum is known for.
In recent months, Deep Ellum Spirits has expanded into new endeavors such as five different flavored vodkas and their first foray into new spirits with Leadbelly Whiskey. Swing by the Deep Ellum Spirits working distillery and tasting room on Thursday-Sunday for specialty cocktails, tours, bottle sales, and all the good times you can handle!
