Soldier of the Sea Distillery Grand Opening

Soldier of the Sea Distillery Grand Opening

Thank you to the fifty plus supporters who celebrated Soldier of the Sea Distillery last Friday at their ribbon cutting and grand opening. We are so proud for Mark and Jennifer and thankful for their investment in Comer and Madison County. Guests had the option to enjoy a tasting and learn more about each product.  
SOS Distillery is a prime example of how the MADICO MADE brand positively impacts our local economy. With all the main ingredients being sourced in and around the county, the community can feel good in knowing their purchase not only supports the locally owned and operated distillery, but it also supports local farms and related businesses that contribute to this operation. We at the Chamber are proud to celebrate Madison County's first distillery as a collaboration among the SOS team, the City of Comer, local farms, UGA Small Business Development Center, and other state and local resources. 

The ceremony included comments from Mayor Yarbrough and Deputy Commissioner Jaronski.
