ASW Distillery Opening at The Battery Atlanta

The Battery Atlanta partners with the largest production distillery in Georgia to bring a third ASW Distillery to the Atlanta community. The new space will feature a tasting room, a production facility to house stills, a small batch bottling operation and a cocktail program. Its one-of-a-kind craft products and experiences will complement the table of tastes and experiences at the Cobb lifestyle destination.

Jim Chasteen and Charlie Thompson started ASW Distillery in 2011; Justin Manglitz, a world-class master distiller, joined his fellow University of Georgia alumni in 2015. ASW was the first whiskey distillery in the City of Atlanta since the American Prohibition. The manufacturer released Fiddler Bourbon and Resurgens Rye in addition to awarding the state its first-ever Double Gold Medal with its Duality Double Malt.

“The Atlanta Braves have been such an integral part of Georgia history for over fifty years. The state has likewise been home to a rich tradition in whiskey-making that we’ve been excited to help revive,” said Jim Chasteen, CEO of ASW Distillery. “Bringing these two traditions together is like a dream come true for us. The Braves Development Company has been an absolute joy to work with, and we are beyond thrilled about this partnership.”

ASW Distillery will offer The Battery Atlanta’s visitors public tasting hours and walk-up tour experiences. The cocktail programs will educate attendees on how to prepare delicious whiskey cocktails and the history behind them. Known for its award-winning portfolio of spirits, ASW will introduce and distill a new vodka and gin onsite at The Battery Atlanta.

“Our campus offers an ideal setting to connect our fans and guests with ASW’s unique offerings and will serve as a place to forge new relationships within Braves Country and the local community,” said Jeremy Strife, Executive Vice President of Development for the Braves Development Company. “We continuously strive to bring curated and quality partners that enhance the overall experience at The Battery Atlanta, and the addition of ASW reinforces that commitment.”

The 3,514 square-foot space will be located across from Good Game powered by Topgolf Swing Suite on the corner of Legends Place and Battery Avenue and is scheduled to open in late spring. For more information on The Battery Atlanta please visit
