HANDCRAFTED SPIRITS MADE WITH THE FINEST INGREDIENTS
We choose to do things our own way as a distillery, whether it be selecting multiple yeast strains for our fermentations or aging our whiskies and rums in a unique mixture of charred and toasted barrels. At Thornton Distilling Company, we believe that quality handcrafted spirits should never be rushed.
A “Dead Drop” is an old prohibition-era bootlegging term. Often times barrels of whiskey would be left at a secret location for pick-up at a later date when the coast is clear. Because of our building’s colorful history and long tradition of malt fermentation, to us, Dead Drop means to pick up from where our predecessors left off and to honor the craftsmanship and methodologies of a bygone era. And thus Dead Drop Spirits was born.
