We at the Chesapeake Bay Distillery have always been committed to serving others, in both good and bad times. Now, more than ever, we are focused on being the best community partner possible to our employees, our neighbors and our community. We have decided to close our Tasting Room until further notice. Our retail store will remain open, however, with curb-side service available. Simply call 498-4210 and your bag will be delivered to you in your parked car. For those of you who are going to miss our delicious Tasting Room flights, the first 100 people who make a retail purchase will get a gift card for a free tasting (valued at $8).
Together, we will get through this. In the words of Matt Groening, we offer you a cheers - “To alcohol! The cause of... and solution to... all of life's problems.” With love, your Chesapeake Bay Distillery family.
