About Us

Small-batch craft spirits

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 family owned and operated craft distillery is proud to produce every drop of our Spirit right here in the barn of our ten acre farm. We only use locally grown grains and fruits to create our Spirits and all our water comes from our private well. That means every drop of Independent Spirit is true craft and purely South Jersey. Homegrown and Handcrafted, everything craft is supposed to be. With five years in the business now, we are blessed with aged spirits that have spent five years in the barrel. Our Espresso liqueur is on its seventh release and we just bottled our sixth Apple Pie Moonshine. New things are on the horizon as we continue to concoct new fruit liqueurs, flavored Moonshines and Vodkas and whatever else we can come up with.

We are a very small, family-owned and operated business. We are proud to be true craft distillers and we make everything from the spirits to the cocktails to the cherries in the Manhattans with the same passion for creating delicious things. We wouldn't exist if people didn't take the time to come by for a visit, have a few cocktails and maybe take a bottle or two home to share. We promise the spirits the music and the conversation will flow freely and you will be glad you came.  

  

Back in 2013, the State of New Jersey made the enlightened decision to allow Craft Distilling. When Kerry caught wind of this possibility, she was intrigued. Intimidated but intrigued. There was much she did not know. But there were some things she was sure of: She knew if she became a craft distiller, she was committed to hand crafting every Independent Spirit through the entire process of distillation. With the bounty of fruits and grains offered in the South Jersey countryside she knew she had plenty of ingredients nearby and she would never, ever buy commercial, neutral spirits to repackage as if she had made them.

Ultimately, Kerry decided to become a craft distiller because she wanted to make Spirits. She is totally committed to her craft and she is passing that commitment on to the next generation. Sons Mark and Erik now play major roles in the operations of the distillery. The energy and ideas that they bring make the future look very bright for Independent Spirits Distillery.

Independent Spirits Distillery

 

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.

We have a full line of Spirits all made from local grains and distilled in our beautiful Mueller Still. The whole family lends a hand and plays their important part in the operation, and we are all very proud of what we create here. The only thing more gratifying than making the Spirits together is sharing them with others and seeing them delight in the fruits of our labors.

We hope you enjoy our Independent Spirits as much as we enjoy making them for you. From our family to yours thank you for your support!
