D. Canale Announces New Distillery to Open on Front Street

D. Canale & Company, a Memphis name brand associated with alcohol for nearly 150 years, announced today it is building a distillery in downtown Memphis. After selling its beverage business to Hand Family Beverage Co. in 2010, Canale has been relatively quiet. But the new venture, Old Dominick Distillery, would place D. Canale back firmly in the public consciousness.

According to a press release, Old Dominick Distillery is scheduled to begin operation in Summer 2015 and open to the public in Fall 2015, and it will be located directly across from Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken, at 301 South Front Street. The building will be a production and bottling facility as well as a public tasting room.

Old Dominick was a widely tasted whiskey in the years before Prohibition. You can read lots more about the brand and "Old Dominick" himself — the D. Canale namesake — here.

Old Dominick Whiskey will be revived, along with a line of other whiskeys and vodkas, all to be made at the Front Street location.

The building is being designed by LRK and built by Archer Custom Builders, both of Memphis, and D. Canale will be consulted by Thoroughbred Spirits Group, based in Louisville, Kentucky.
