2/3 to 3/4 of the old inn was demolished to make room for the distillery. Bergeron Technical Services provided project coordination, permitting and administrative services throughout the project. The remaining portion of the Tamworth Inn (Red building in pictures) was gutted on the interior and rehabilitated on the exterior. The exterior was retrofitted with a front porch, designed by Bergeron Technical Services, to match a previously removed porch shown in historical photographs of the Inn. The new Distillery building is a state-of-the art facility designed for manufacturing spirits of all types, a botanical kitchen for recipe development and the beautiful retail space which includes a tasting bar for sampling all the products made on site, a sun room overlooking the gardens and barrel house, and a large picture window to view the distilling operations and all the beautiful copper. Bergeron Technical Services assisted the owners with procuring and configuring the distilling equipment, designed and produced by Vendome Copper and Brass Works of Louisville, KY. The design of the distillery incorporates a 35,000 gallon cistern in the foundation, beneath the distillery, to supply the building’s sprinkler system and allow for cycling and re-use of the cooling water used to condense the spirits in the distilling equipment.
