Originally the historic FP&L Ice Plant, St. Augustine Distillery’s building was built in 1907. Initially the large warehouse space was used to make commercial ice blocks for the state of Florida.

Fantastic Historic Venue with a Great Staff
Myself and my now wife had an amazing time hosting our small ceremony and reception at the Distillery. We chose to have it in the smaller tasting room and it was perfect for a group of ~25. Zoe and her team helped make this such a special night and we really appreciate everything she did. She went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smooth including keeping the other vendors in the loop. We couldn't have imagine a more perfect night at such a great venue. We highly recommend anyone looking for a venue to choose this location and team.Sent on 01/27/2021

From out of town, organizing can be difficult and results uncertain. Zoe and the Distillery staff were amazing from the planning through every detail to the final execution and they made sure the guests all felt welcome and special. it was great fun sharing some St Augustine charm and top distillery product too. We felt everyone's support and excitement for the event.Our whole group focused on the celebration of the moment. In combination with the excellent food from the Ice Plant, we could not have had a better evening!!!! Thank you all.Sent on 10/15/2019
