Our Distillery in Woolwich Township
The Independent is a family-owned and family-operated craft distillery on ten acres of farmland in Woolwich Township, New Jersey. We may be the first craft distillery in Gloucester County but we know we won’t be the last. Craft distilling is here to stay and we are overjoyed to be part of the movement.
Our Mueller Still is the centerpiece of our operation. Custom made in Germany, erected at our barn by family members, it is the heart of the matter in producing our grain to glass spirits.
All our spirits from our botanical infused Aquavit to our Whiskey are distilled right here using locally sourced grains and produce. Our goal is to make uniquely delicious craft spirits that reflect the rich bounty of grains, fruits and botanicals grown in New Jersey and our Danish and Irish American heritage. We create everything in small batches so there is lots of room for experimentation!
We love visitors. Contact us for more information.
Enjoy a little spirit and please drink responsibly.
