Take a quick trip to Mystic Farm and Distillery and you will quickly see why its becoming one of the most popular places in Durham. Not only are they the Triangle’s first grain to glass distillery since Prohibition, but they have turned their 22-acre farm into a destination for the whole family! Between craft markets, distilling, and tasting experiences, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Mystic recently announced a public share offering so even you can be a co-owner of a distillery right here in Durham!

Beyond the Distillery

It’s a place where you can experience the grain-to-glass journey from start to finish. The grain is grown on the property or a farm in nearby Hillsborough. You can walk through the fields of grain, see the goats, learn about the distilling process, and sample a variety of Mystic’s award winning spirits.

A Sustainable Approach

The distillery also boasts one of the largest solar fields in the industry which means that they can produce 100% of the distilleries energy needs right on site. Also, all of their spent grain is given to a local farm who’s beef you can also purchase at the distillery. This sustainable approach to farming makes Mystic a truly unique Durham gem! 

Award-Winning Spirits

And let’s not forget the spirits! Among numerous awards, they recently won a Gold medal for their Heart of Mystic bourbon at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021 and 2022. They also won a double gold medal and Best Small Batch Bourbon Up to 5 Years for the Heart of Mystic bourbon also at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. They also might be sending some Bourbon to SPACE! But that’s a story for another day!
