Downtown Crestview, Florida, has a really cool hidden gem. You have to go inside the Fox Theater Building to find it. If you’ve never been before, you might not be expecting what you’ll find inside. The old theater building now houses the Peaden Brothers Distillery.
About the Distillery
You can find the distillery at 382 North Main Street, Crestview. Peaden Brothers Distillery welcomes visitors every Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. You can also book a tour on another day if you need to.
The inside of the Peaden Brothers Distillery is really cool. You can taste the whiskey in the barrel-shaped tasting room. They also have historical photos from the Prohibition and the years after. It’s so interesting to see the history of whiskey in America while you taste some of the best product around.
The Peaden Brothers Distillery offers a few kinds of whiskey. Their classic moonshine is a call back to the long history of moonshine made during the prohibition era in Okaloosa County. You can also try strawberry, banana, cherry, and blueberry flavored whiskeys. A lot of times they have other spirits in seasonal flavors. Stop by to see what they’re offering now.
One of the most fun parts of visiting the distillery is learning about how whiskey is made. You can even see some parts of the process on your tour. And Peaden Brothers Distillery is family owned. That means you’ll get to meet several members of the family since they’re also the staff. They’ll be happy to tell you about the history of the business and the area.
