Our Story

I bet most people have better dreams than I do at night, but I dream in flavors!  That's how Asylum Distillery started...it's all about making the most interesting flavors possible using locally grown corn to create craft, small-batch bold taste spirit sensations.  Okay, I'll admit, I have the best job in the world.  Many people don't know what real flavors are, but I'd like to introduce everyone to artisanal flavors, flavors that only come from the best that nature has to offer. 

For me it's an epic journey to search out the best and distill it into an incredible tasting product for those who want to try something different, local and made in Bridgeport.  Asylum Distillery never adds sugar, always uses non-GMO corn and will never introduce a product you can make better yourself at home.  Since our start in 2014,  we try to live up to our motto, "Distilling the spirit of Connecticut".
