Spirits among spirits: Distillery near cemetery produces gin, vodka
Saturday, August 17, 2019
There aren’t many craft spirit companies named after a graveyard. However, count Alexandria’s newest distillery among them.
Ida Graves Distillery is located near Lake Ida and Lake Ida Cemetery, and has been distributing products since July.
Co-founders and owners Anna Wilson and Brock Berglund wanted to produce spirits locally sourced and environmentally responsible. The two are married and work full-time jobs in other industries, but sought to follow their passions into the craft spirits market as a side endeavor, hopefully turning it into something larger.
