Ryan & Wood beat out a competitive field of deserving nominees from the Greater Beverly area to bring the trophy back to Gloucester. Ryan & Wood Distilleries, located at the Blackburn Industrial Park, welcomes you to come by for a free tour Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday at 10:00 AM and at 1:00 PM.
Bobby Ryan and Ryan and Wood are now making three types of Whiskey and they are at the forefront of the highly sought after Whiskey market. Their Wheat Whiskey is produced in such an artisan way that it takes a crazy long time to produce and people have been fighting to be able to score it.
Bobby brought down a bottle for me inside this Bob Morris (a Rockport lobsterman) produced lobster trap wire lobster!
If you haven’t visited Ryan and woods up in Blackburn Industrial Park you really ought to go up for a tour. It’s a treasure and really interesting to see how such an artisan crafted produced is produced right here in our city.
