Grand opening Saturday for newest Dayton-area distillery


The area’s newest craft distillery — Flat Rock Spirits in Bath Twp. near Fairborn, which bottles under the Stillwrights brand and label — will host a product-release party and “Grand Launch Mixer” from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 7 at 5380 Intrastate Drive near I-675 and Ohio 444.

The event will include distillery tours, food for purchase and a live radio broadcast.

The distillery is owned by brothers Brad and Shawn Measel, and their cousin James Bagford. For more information about Saturday’s event, call (937) 879-4447 or email brad@flatrockspirits.com.

Flat Rock Spirits is in the process of rolling out seven of its products at five Dayton-area retail outlets starting this week. The products, which are available for sale at the distillery’s tasting room and gift shop, include Stillwrights Straight Bourbon, Key Lime Pie Moonshine, Margarita Moonshine, Apple Pie Moonshine, Peach Cobbler Moonshine, Cinnamon Moonshine and Traditional Recipe Moonshine.

Three more products — Silver Rum, Bourbon-Barrel Rum and Spiced Rum — will be added to the retail lineup later this summer.
