Seacrets Moves Forward With Distillery Plans

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- Seacrets has received the final green light from the Town of Ocean City to move forward with it's addition of the distillery.

A proposed senate bill established a class nine craft distillery in Ocean City, and Seacrets is the first bar in the town to take advantage of it. This bill allows businesses with eligible licenses to distill spirits on their properties.

Last year, Seacrets launched their own line of spirits including rum, vodka and whiskey, that is currently being distilled in Delaware. This new bill will allow Seacrets to distill their liquors on the south side of their fourty-nineth street property.

Seacrets owner Leighton Moore said this passage is big for Seacret's major plan.

"It's huge, it's the first one in the state, it was a big hurdle to get over and we didn't have too much complication in getting it done which is surprising," Moore said.

This bill will now allow businesses to distill more than 100,000 gallons of liquor a year. Part of Moore's plan is to offer guided distillery tours and tastings.

George Berglund is from New Jersey and he said Seacrets is a major reason why he visits the town.

"There's no other place like it on the East Coast and I think it's a good economic boost for the town," Berglund said.

Moore plans to start construction on the distillery in the fall and hopes to open the distillery by summer of 2016.
