Ghost Coast Distillery - Tour Recommendation

Savannah, GA 


As a photographer I'm always looking for new things to photograph. Unique locations and people. As a inquisitive woman, I love to learn and try new thing. As a mom (even though I'm an empty-nester now), I still a desire to teach my children, so when my 21 year old son came down for a visit we decided to learn about the Vodka making process at Ghost Coast Distillery. 

I met Chris recently at another function and he told me that, not only are they Savannah's first distillery since before the prohibition, but that they provide tours to the general public too. I was intrigued. Even though I no longer drink alcohol I wanted to see the facility and learn about all the different steps. From the moment you walk in the front doors, you have a sense of family owned business. You're immediately greeted, and the energy that the employees generate is vibrant and happy. There are currently 2 flavors of vodka that they provide to businesses and they are magnificently displayed on well lit shelves that draw the eye in to view them. They even have some really nice flasks, shirts, hats and many other items with their logos on them that you can purchase. The logo is pleasing to the eye and easy to read and looks amazing on their white t-shirts (I think I have to go back and get one because I simply fell in love with it). 

At the time of this writing you can purchase a tour ticket for $12.50 (includes the tour, and a tasting of their vodka). For $32 you receive the tour and a Souvenir bottle of Ghost Coast Vodka 261. My son, who is not a vodka drinker, LOVED the orange flavored 261. 

The tour is extremely informative which starts with a video displayed on all 4 walls of the room. There is so much information and visual effects that it will keep you glued to the show. General Oglethorpe hated lawyers and hated alcohol and both were forbidden when Savannah was founded. Now, not only do we have lawyers, a law school, and alcohol but a distillery too. 

Savannah, GA is chock full of unique and interesting things to visit and experience and Ghost Coast Distillery is just one of them. When you schedule your portrait session with me, a list of great tours is one of the services that I provide to help make planning your visit to Savannah a bit less stressful. And if you do decide to visit Ghost Coast Distillery, please tell them I sent you and give Chris a wave for me. 

Visit their website to learn more about their business and their tours. You won't regret this tour. 

P.S. I hear a rumor they have whiskey and bourbon coming soon!
