Cincinnati Distilling now open at the Old Millcroft Inn in Milford, Ohio

CINCINNATI - After a long journey preserving a 200 year old house and stable known as the Millcroft Inn in Milford, Ohio Cincinnati Distilling has opened its doors at their new distillery location at 203 Mill Street in Milford, Ohio. The 14,000sqft $7 million dollar project houses their distilling operation, the Cincinnati Distilling Tavern, dining room, large event space, a bakery and rooftop bar. Nation Kitchen and Bar also operates in part of the old house on the property.

Distilling operations will move to Milford by early next year where Cincinnati Distilling will produce their award winning bourbons, whiskeys, vodka, rum and more. Cincinnati Distilling has been named a top 3 whiskey distillery for three years in a row at the US Open. You will be able to experience spirit tastings and a cocktail menu while dining in or seated at the bar. The bottle/gift shop will be stocked with the full lineup of Cincinnati Distilling products available for carry-out. In addition Cincinnati Distilling will be carrying beers made by their sister companies, March First, FigLeaf and Woodburn Brewing as well as Astra hard seltzer. A curated wine selection is also available.

Cincinnati Distilling’s culinary team lead by Bhumin Desai and ___________ is offering an elevated midwestern comfort food menu featuring main items like a Prime 14oz New York Strip, Pastrami Short Rib and Glazed Lamb Shank while also offering more affordable main dishes like their All American Cheeseburger, Wagyu Italian Beef Sandwich or Peri Peri Potato Sandwich. There is also a robust appetizer, salad, and dessert menu.

The complex will also house a sweet shop/baked goods store called Sugarworks led by head baker Jessica Graham. Sugarworks will not only sell in the storefront on the Water Street side of the building but will also supply desserts for the main dining room, catering for events and all of the March First Brands taproom. The Sugarworks store is not open yet, but should be by the end of the year.

The entire second floor of the complex is dedicated to an art gallery, museum and 200 person event space that will be rentable for any event imaginable. Cincinnati Distilling will be able to provide a full catering service and alcohol needs for events in the space. It will be a one stop shop. Additionally Cincinnati Distilling and the Millcroft Gallery will be doing their own in-house public events within the space.

The crown jewel of the project is the Cooper Island Rum rooftop bar which features a partially covered, partially open air rooftop bar complete with fire pits and plenty of seating overlooking Old Milford and the Little Miami River. While it will see limited use in the winter Cincinnati Distilling plans to kick off the spring with a huge rooftop party. The bar will serve a modified “beach drink” cocktail menu and will eventually have a small bar bite food menu as well.

Currently Cincinnati Distilling is open Wed-Sun from 4-11pm with the kitchen closing at 10pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but the best way to guarantee a table is to make a reservation on their website
