Plans Move Forward for a New Distillery
Some developers are hoping to have a whiskey distillery in production in West Virginia by this fall. A conditional use permit has been approved for The Bullock Distillery in Charleston and it’s planned to go into one of the former Staats Hospital buildings. The Gazette-Mail reports the company would like to use locally sourced ingredients, including West Virginia corn and spring water. Another permit to open a micro-distillery was approved in March for Charleston.
