So the next morning in Maryland, we signed up for a distillery tour at Seacrets. So Justin and I walked all the way to Seacrets from our hotel.
When we got there we found ourselves with a group but almost transported back in time. Inside the distillery was an old fashioned elevator from Chicago. We also checked in with a clock in with an employee time card that doubled as a tasting sheet.
First up, we saw all the ingredients that made their fantastic spirits. Corn for them as a must as a base. Then we learned more about the bottles that they used and how the bottles used inhouse at their bar differed from the consumer bottles. Seacrets is about recycling bottles at their bar and they use the bottles for roughly 20 times.
Afterwards we saw where the spirits are distilled which is close to an old school office with Thomas Alva Edison’s actual desk. I adored these unique touches. Then we saw where everything was bottled. This area was near the “pharmacy.”
So when our group entered the pharmacy there were a lot of antiques inside including a cool phone booth that worked and that one person in our group called. Once the call was made, the doors opened to a speakeasy. We found ourselves at a U shaped bar. We sat and were able to try 3 different spirits — I had Lemon Drop Vodka, Coconut Rum and Ruby Grapefruit vodka. Each was so delicious. Justin and I mixed and matched. spirits.
Overall, this was a great way to way to start off our beer driven day.
