Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 10.48.18 AM

Founded in 2016, Manifest Distilling is located in Downtown Jacksonville’s Sports District, home of the Everbank Field and other sports venues.

Manifest prides itself in utilizing American-made distillation equipment, as well as using grains sourced from a network of co-ops throughout North America. The distillation process for their spirits is greatly influenced by the Siebel Institute, a brew school that is famous for its techniques.

 

A few noteworthy aspects of the distillery include:

 

ToursScreen Shot 2017-11-10 at 10.57.13 AM

The Standard- A guided tour that gives an overview of the production area, with the chance to view and learn about spirits. Tours end in the tasting room, with free samples of spirits and cocktails.

Distiller’s Tour- A more detailed tour of the production process that provides a look into the science of distillation and what goes into making the spirits you love to drink. This tour ends with tasting as well, but with sensory perception, nosing and blind tasting.

Private Tastings- Private guided tastings are available for groups of 10+.

 

VenuesScreen Shot 2017-11-10 at 10.57.24 AM

The distillery’s 9,000 square foot space boasts a modern, upscale design and consists of three versatile spaces: the bar, the tasting room and the distillery. Each space connects with rolling glass doors allowing for a range of private or semi-private events.  The bar can host 60 people, the tasting room can host 30 people and the distillery can host 167 people. The selection of spaces allows them to host a variety of different events, such as weddings, birthday parties and business functions.

 

 

SpiritsScreen Shot 2017-11-10 at 10.57.35 AM

Currently, Manifest offers five different spirits: Potato Vodka, Gin, Rye, Barreled Gin and Florida Citrus Vodka, with several of them earning awards from events such as the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.

Manifest spirits can be purchased in their tasting room, ordered online through EZRA’S shipping to 36 states in the U.S. or found in select stores all over Jacksonville.

The music scene in #DTJax has always been an integral part of the full Jacksonville experience. The Elbow, the Entertainment District of #DTJax, hosts many music and performance venues in its area.

From major headliners to locally known artists, the different music venues allow us to have many options when we are making plans for a big night out.

 

1904 Music Hall

19 Ocean St.

Founded in 2011, 1904 Music Hall has been an iconic part of #DTJax for the past several years. The original building that they are housed in was built in 1904, hence the namesake, and has since been renovated in order to create the current space that we know and love.

While they can host anything from private parties to punk rock shows, the 1904 Music Hall is only open when there are events planned, so be sure to check out their events calendar!
