History is repeating itself on the banks of the Speed River. The former site of Allan’s Distillery, built in 1835 across the river from the family’s grist mill, is being reimagined as a new craft distillery, stylish eatery and tasting room. The stone heritage building will add to the attraction of The Metalworks, enticing residents, locals and visitors with delicious food and drink.


To celebrate this momentous occasion, The Studio at The Metalworks is releasing new suites at an event on Saturday, May 6th. Potential purchasers can register online to receive more information about the launch, which will begin at noon.
