Ocean City Today

Inside Going Out

By Taylor Sloan | Jul 20, 2017
Photo by: Taylor Sloan/Ocean City Today Eileen Buckingham and Louis Cyrtmus, both of Richmond, Virginia, hang out at Ocean 13 restaurant, on the Boardwalk at 13th Street, Monday.

Last week, Seacrets servers and bartenders were given tours of Seacrets Distillery, located next to the bar and restaurant on 49th Street.

It is rather impressive that the distillery produces the coconut, white, gold and spiced rums; clear, lemon, orange and grapefruit vodkas; gin, light-whiskey and bourbon-whiskey that Seacrets uses as its rail liquors.

If you are at least 21 years of age, you should definitely take a tour of the beautiful distillery. Tours run noon to 6 p.m. daily, every hour on the hour. Parties of six or more should call ahead and reservations can be made online as well as in person.

The cost is only $10, and unlike the employees who toured, each participant gets to try three liquor samples in the tasting room (it sounds as fancy as it is). Don’t forget to give Seacrets Distilling Company a “like” on Facebook.

After you’re finished, enjoy lunch, dinner or happy hour at Seacrets Bar and Grille next door.
