Area 51 ice cream, a leading maker of luxury hand-made artisan ice creams and sorbet today announced it will be expanding to Crosstown Concourse in Memphis, TN. The company, which prides itself on crafting unique one-of-a-kind ice creams, will open a new shop in conjunction with the Crosstown Concourse opening celebration on May 13th, 2017!
"We are thrilled to be a part of such a unique and historic project in the city," says owner of Area 51 ice cream, Steve Cubbage. “Once we had our initial meeting with Todd Richardson, we knew that we wanted to be a part of this project. Our core mission and Crosstown's mission were perfectly aligned.”
Area 51 ice cream has been producing hand-crafted ice cream and sorbet for North Mississippi clientele since May 2014. Made from scratch daily in Hernando, MS, they truly believe that the best ingredients make the best ice cream. That’s why theirs is always made with natural, in-season produce and ingredients. They work closely with other small local businesses, and frequent the Hernando Farmer’s Market, to make sure their ice cream is always the freshest, and will help to benefit the community.
"Our passion for ice cream started from childhood, when a sweet scoop could make the rest of the world melt away. We want to bring that same joy to our customers, every time they get a taste of our rich, specialty ice cream." says owner Karin Cubbage.
Old Dominick Distillery is pleased to announce that it started filling whiskey barrels with its carefully crafted Memphis TN Whiskey.
Old Dominick Whiskey was a known label from 1866 until prohibition. The D. Canale family has now restored this 150 year-old family business into a full service grain-to-glass spirits distillery.
In the last few days, Alex Castle, head distiller and her team distilled whiskey made from their own mash, from grains milled, cooked, malted and fermented all in house. They put it through the mandatory TN whiskey maple charcoal filter and it was time to start filling the whiskey oak barrels.
It felt like a historical moment for the Canale family and the Old Dominick team.
“It is an exciting day for our company, and fitting that we are aging Old Dominick Whiskies for the first time since Tennessee Prohibition forced us to stop precisely 100 years ago in 1917.” Said Chris Canale, Old Dominick Distillery owner and great-great grandson of Domenico Canale, founder of the Old Dominick Brand.
Beyond bringing true craft production to Downtown, Old Dominick Distillery will welcome guests for tours, tastings, events, and retail spirits sales. Old Dominick opens this year, in the spring.
