The Depot Craft Brewery Distillery
The Depot manufactures many spirits, but they are highly known for their award-winning whiskey. They collect their grains from local fields and farms; once these grains are milled, cooked, fermented and washed, they are transferred to their forged copper and steel stills where the whiskey comes to life. While you get to enjoy The Depot’s delicious whiskey, be sure to check out their brews and food as well.
“The Depot’s Rye Whiskey revels the spirit that has long been a mainstay of American culture. Since the Revolution that gave rise to our nation, Rye has been coveted by distillers and aficionados for its spicy aromas and smooth finish. This modern rendition showcases Nevada grown rye and corn along with small barrel aging that adds to the spirit’s complexity. $42.”
