Sleepwear Manufacturing Facility is now a distillery

Another great example of adaptive reuse…A former sleepwear manufacturing facility constructed in the 1960’s has been transformed into a riverfront distillery in Weldon, NC by investors Bruce Tyler and Michael Hinderliter producing fine spirts, including bourbon, whiskey, vodka, gin and other flavored liquors. This component of the investors’ overall vision touches many facets of economic development–community revitalization, tourism development, manufacturing, and historic preservation.
