“Drink gin in a former rubber factory” is a good place to start.
That’s about to happen thanks to Short Path Distillery, a new maker of spirits housed in a 19th-century industrial building, opening Saturday in Everett. (We built a slideshow for you.)
This is located directly behind the Teddie Peanut Butter factory. And that’s adorable. But let’s move on.
There’s a heavy DIY vibe going on here. The beat-up concrete floors and open-timber ceilings from its factory days remain, but now you’ve got a lacquered wood bar made from northern white pine and copper pot stills from Portugal in the middle of it all.
First, you’ll spend 30 minutes touring the distilling side of the operation and get all tactile with their botanicals. Then you’ll decamp to the tasting room for pours of their first two offerings: a white rum and a gin with serious lavender notes.
This Saturday just happens to be their opening party, where spirit samples will be distributed at the bar and the Roving Lunchbox truck will be distributing hand pies outside.
So don’t worry about bringing a dip.
