Our Distillery and Tasting Room is located in a historic mill building in downtown Pawtucket, RI. If you are visiting Rhode Island or the Providence area, we hope you’ll spend some time in our fair city. It’s full of things to do, places to visit, and the unique character of a city like no other.
Slater Mill: More than 200 years ago, Samuel Slater had an idea. He left England to launch a water-powered cotton mill in Pawtucket, built a wooden clapboard structure the size of a large garage and installed some machinery. Then he tapped the hydropower of both the Blackstone River and Pawtucket Falls. The result: For the first time in this country, cotton thread was spun by machine instead of by hand. The nation’s Industrial Revolution had begun.
Blackstone Valley National Historic Park: The mighty river that powered the American Industrial Revolution has been restored with bikeways and walking paths that connect historic mills, mill villages, and parks throughout the region.
Explorer Riverboat Tours: For 25 years, Explorer River Tours have brought hundreds of thousands of passengers on an interesting journey to see Blackstone River Valley from a new perspective. Enjoy scenic Nature & Heritage Tours, special twilight cruises, local author talks, birding trips, food tours, and more!
Slater Park: This notable urban park features 197 acres of woodland, trails, and recreational facilities, including tennis courts and picnic sites. The Looff Carousel was beautifully restored in 1978. Bike & walk the 3-mile-trail on the 10-Mile-River (don’t ask…) Slater Park is home to the historic Daggett House, Water Color Society and a dog park.
Pawtucket Arts Festival: This annual event takes over stages, parks, and streets city-wide in September. Expect performances, open studios, and special events all month long.
Dragon Boat Races: The Rhode Island Chinese Dragon Boat Races & Taiwan Day Festival occurs annually in September at Pawtucket's Festival Pier. The races use the fiberglass Taiwanese-style dragon boats gifted to us from Taiwan and incorporate the skill of flag-catching in each race.
Burbage Theater Company: Our next door neighbors just happen to be a very accomplished professional theatre company that wins awards for its productions every year. Do check them out!
