All About Woodstone Creek
Woodstone Creek gets not only the nod as the first distillery to reopen after prohibition here in Cincinnati – but they were the first to do so in all of Ohio… and one of the first to do it in the entire country. These guys are the OGs of what it means to be a ‘Craft Distillery’.
If you want to know about who they are, what you have put front and center is the idea of DIY. Owner and distiller Don built his pot still by hand, and for years the team of his wife (Linda) and he ran the wine, spirits and mead business when no one else was doing anything like it here in Cincinnati.
It’s easy to overlook the little guys like this when you have massive operations with big, shiny tasting rooms and distilleries popping up around town – but don’t. The folks at Woodstone are doing things in a way that some times might be harder or more complicated – but they are doing it with the right intentions, and doing it extremely well.
What’s Woodstone Creek Like?
Woodstone Creek isn’t the biggest in town – far from it – but that’s part of what makes it so special. The tasting room is located in a building that used to be a bank in downtown St. Bernard – it has a small bar and some tables for you to spend an afternoon trying a few new things before you take a bottle or 3 home with you. They’ve got wine, mead and of course spirits for you to sample and purchase.
