GIA Distillery, Hand Crafted Spirits
Welcome to GIA Distillery, Hand Crafted Spirits
GIA Distillery is located in Madison, NC in an 135 year old train station. All of our products are hand-crafted, hand-bottled and hand-labeled in house.
Our newest product, FJW, is a Solera Aged American whiskey. Literally meaning "on the ground", Solera aging incorporates a waterfall type effect by storing liquor in stacked barrels. Tapped and bottled in intervals from the bottom barrels, the process is repeated until the top row needs some "new" or unaged liquor. Solera is considered "the mixture of the ages".
Our Grappa, Francesca, is hand produced using and old world style from Triste, Italy, that has all but disappeared in the last 400 years. The product is then rested on French Oak until it produces a light golden color. This process produces a profound grape flavor and a smoothness that's not found in other grappa products. For people unaccustomed to grappa, we include a hang tag with several recipes developed by a master bartender.
