Art and spirits will come together this fall in Chamblee.
The Distillery of Modern Art (DOMA), a craft distillery “combining the world of spirits with the world of contemporary art,” according to a press release, will be located at 2197 Irvindale Way and will serve as Chamblee’s first distillery.
Owner Seth Watson will focus on distilling gin and vodka at first, with a variety of American whiskeys and liqueurs to follow.
Partnered with BoggsVickers architectural firm, DOMA will convert a 15,000-square-foot office and warehouse into a production area for the craft distillery, a retail and exhibition space with a tasting room and bar component, and a space for private events.
The distillery will also offer tours, and will partner with local artists in several ways, including recruiting them to design their bottles.
"At the Distillery of Modern Art, we are first and foremost a distillery of fine spirits," Watson said in a prepared statement. "We are also a destination and experience that's shaped, in part, by our local community. That's why we are tapping into our surrounding arts community to find established and emerging artists to feature their abstract expression of our spirits which will serve as an integral part of our bottles, our distillery and ultimately, our brand."
