Painted Stave Distilling


Lights… camera… vodka! A 1940’s downtown movie house is home to Painted Stave Distilling. Delaware’s first stand-alone distillery pays homage to that with movie-themed spirits. Its distillers encourage visitors to experience the whiskeys, gins, bourbon and vodkas straight up. But they also love to invent and have people sample new mixes and cocktails. And you can check out a rotating gallery of spectacular, local artwork.Painted Stave also offers a unique facility available for private parties, fundraisers and events
