The Full Sensory Experience will feature a Distillery, a Modern Art Gallery, Bar Area, ‘Living Wall’ Garden, and a 2800sq. ft. Event Space
Seven Distinct Spirits to include Atlanta Vodka, Peach Flavored Vodka, Bourbon Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Nouveau Gin, and Digestivo
Built on a foundation of experiences, Distillery of Modern Art, a new concept coming this fall to Chamblee, GA, is an amalgamation of distillery, gallery, event space, covered patio, ‘living wall’ with fresh grown herbs, and cocktail lounge. Guest are invited to immerse themselves in this purpose-driven concept which showcases art in all its many forms and challenges them to leave their perceptions at the door. Going beyond what’s in the bottle, the 15,000 square foot space is a modern art gallery whose walls feature local artists and installations- several of which are utilized for DoMA’s bottle art. Moving into the bar area, this is where the spirits come alive as master mixologists create signature cocktails using one of the house-created spirits, often pulling garnishes from the ‘living wall’ garden adjacent to the lounge. And while DoMA provides the setting and experiences for its guests, it also includes a 2800 square foot private event space to allow you to create your own unique experience. In short, Distillery of Modern Art is an accessible meeting of both art and spirit.
True to its name, this is a distillery, and that warrants putting the spotlight the seven distinct spirits. Shaped by an adept team of innovators, each is a graced missive for connoisseurs everywhere. Atlanta Vodka, Peach Flavored Vodka- made with Georgia-grown peaches, Bourbon Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Nouveau Gin, and an easy-drinking Digestivo have all been developed over the past few years with perfection in mind. With the vision of making the creatively impossible possible, DoMA boasts a backdrop of artistic expression with support from emerging artists in the community. Creators already secured include Xie Caomi, Juliana Lupacchino, and Josh Jalbert, who showcase their designs on the in-house Rye Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, and Atlanta Vodka bottles, respectively.
“I am an instigator. I live to inspire those around me.” says Distillery of Modern Art founder Seth Watson. “I want to facilitate creativity in all possible ways. I like to be a dreamer but what I like more is allowing dreamers to bring ideas to reality.”
Finally, on the top shelf are the Tour & Tasting bookings that run daily from noon to 3 p.m. For only $15 per guest, groups of 10 or less can relish signature-crafted cocktails while absorbing the history of DoMA and the Chamblee region. The interactive, step-by-step walkthrough of the distillation process is a riveting activity-friendly for friends, family, and co-workers. For larger parties, guests can take advantage of either the 735-square foot Kandinsky Tasting Room, 861-square foot Watson Gallery, or 2,800-square foot Rothko Room. These contemporary and lofty spaces can complement an array of bustling celebrations.
