Painted Stave Distilling opened in 2013 in a restored 1940s movie theater in downtown Smyrna, Delaware. Our facility includes a 4,000 sqft production floor that houses our mashing, fermenting and distilling equipment, a 40 seat craft cocktail bar, an art gallery and event space that is available for private gatherings, and soon to be completed outdoor Cocktail Garden and 4,800 sqft barrel storage facility. We produce a wide range of spirits including Straight Bourbon, Straight Rye, Western Dry Gin, the world’s only Scrapple Flavored Vodka, and numerous experimental releases from time to time.
Painted Stave was founded on the idea of crafting unique spirts by combining traditional techniques with modern science and equipment. We source local raw materials whenever possible and we prioritize working with other small businesses. We choose to share our spirits with our customers through tours and tastings at our facility, as well as through finely crafted cocktails that showcase what we do best. Our products can be found throughout Delaware, Maryland and Washington DC and we will add additional markets as we have the capacity to do so. You can come and visit us for a tour or tasting during regularly scheduled times, or join us for one of our numerous special events and parties.
