The American AlcoholleryÂ® (Alcohol + gallery= Alcohol Art). The Alcohollery operates Holman Distillery in the Brushy Mountain foothills of the Yadkin Valley, N.C. We started our distillery in October 2015 on the premise there is a better way to make spirits. Distilling spirits is the concentration of flavors from the fermentation of sugar. Since spirits cannot be vintage dated, we made our own segment named 'Single Sugar Spirits.' Our spirits are only produced from a vintage quality sugar from a single place. Our Spur Vodka, batch one, is from 2016 Carlos Muscadine wine. We practice slow distillation to not change any flavors produced in fermentation and take our time with the separation of the alcohols. We use our family farmâ€™s aquifer drawn water to dilute down to bottling proof. Perfected water for impressive spirits. Every part of our process is by hand. We use bottles that cannot be mechanically labeled as we hand bottle, label, and cork. We even hand screen print our boxes. From 'Dirt to Drink', we believe 'The best of anything comes from the best of everything'. We are open for tours by appointment at email@example.com or 336-921-0386. www.alcohollery.com

Kitchens are often described as gathering places, the heart of a home. We like to think of The Speckled Trout in a similar sense. Located in downtown Blowing Rock- on the corner of Main Street and 221- is the newly renovated and reinvented restaurant and bottle shop. We explore the roots of Appalachian food and beverage culture, and recreate it in our kitchen by preserving and reviving ingredients of our local heritage. Menus are more than a list of ingredients; they show how people live and what they value. And as the seasons change, so does our menu.
