Las Vegas Distillery
The first artisan spirit manufacturer in Nevada, Las Vegas Distillery is a true “American Dream” story — a first-generation American-Hungarian family handcrafting fine spirits through love and passion of the craft. Their ingredients have been sourced from the state for decades, and all their products are made in hours. Located 15 minutes from The Las Vegas Strip, guests are welcome to tour the distillery and taste samples. Las Vegas Distillery also encourages you to bring all your family and friends to enjoy the distillery when you book a private event at their location. Enjoy a private tasting or barrel your own private reserve whiskey. Classes in spirit making are also available at this Artisan Booze District gem.
Guests are invited to make their own wine over the course of several visits to this winemaker in the Artisan Booze District of Las Vegas. Learn about varietals, styles, equipment, and procedures before you get smashing. Grape Expectations is a wine lovers’ dream in a world of popular Las Vegas breweries. Start your 9-month winemaking journey with crushing your own grapes, followed by pressing your wine into an oak barrel. Months later, you’ll get to “rack” your wine into a steel tank, and the very last step includes bottling and labeling your very own wine! Sign up for the season that best suits your taste in wine varietals – either California Grapes or Southern Hemisphere grapes. A competitor in the Winemaker International Amateur Wine Competition and member of the American Wine Society, Grape Expectations offers a truly unique experience for visitors of the Artisan Booze District.
