Gin Distillery Opens in Beeville
We hear about craft breweries all over the place but here's a new one for you, a gin distillery is coming to Beeville.
According to a report in the Victoria Advocate, the owners of the clothing stores Bethune and Son at Melvins and Melvins Menswear have opened Coastal Bend Distilling Co. with a grand opening just last week, but the distillery has been in operation since November.
The facility also includes a dance hall next door, and the main building located at 201 N. Madison Ave. also has a tasting room with a cocktail bar.
The gin is exclusive to the distillery and not available anywhere else, and the owner describes it as a little fresher and more citrusy than your average gin. They use juniper as the main ingredient but also citrus peel, orange, lemon, and lime. The distillery also produces vodka and sells sourced whiskey.
