JUST IN: Local distillery to reopen Saturday after 10-month hiatus

A Dayton-area distillery that closed its tasting room in November 2016 is poised to reopen this weekend.

The owners of S&G Artisan Distillery at 305 N. Walnut St. in Yellow Springs suspended operations to deal with personal issues, and the 10-month hiatus "feels like an eternity," said Kerry Scheuner, who co-owns the distillery with her husband Hajo Scheuner.

“We’ve made this distillery our whole world,” Scheuner said. “We have gained so many close friends who started out as our customers. It’s going to be huge for us to be able to spend time with all of our customers after we reopen.”

Plans call S&G Distillery to open its doors at noon tomorrow, Saturday Sept. 9, “and then resume our normal business hours,” Scheuner said. The distillery will be open Wednesday through Friday 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

When it reopens, S&G will have a half-dozen of its spirits on tap, including two versions of apple pie moonshine, its “Honey Do” honey-rum liqueur, and Sneaky Monk, an Italian-style walnut liqueur, along with a handful of other selections in bottle. Other new products are on the way.
