SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – March 24 is National Cocktail Day and that means it’s time to shed a little light on local spirits to use and spots where you can go to celebrate the holiday.

Savannah Distilling

While one local distillery has closed in the past year, there’s still another that you can buy in bars and your local liquor store.

Serving up sweet tea bourbon and Savannah vodka, Savannah Distilling has plenty of spirits to choose from if you’re looking for something local to add to your cocktails for today.

They do not have a brick-and-mortar location, but plenty of stores in the area carry them.

Something even better about this distillery is that they just released a series of ready-to-drink cocktails. They come in Blackberry Lime flavor with either vodka or bourbon added.
