Welcome to Grey Matter Distillery, Jacksonville’s very first craft distillery! Locally and family owned, Grey Matter was founded in 2014. In the spring of 2021, we opened our doors to the public for tours, tastings and an extensive menu of craft cocktails in our cozy Atlantic Beach setting. Grey Matter is the mother-brand of two Florida favorites, Carve Craft Vodka and Live Oak Whiskey, both of which are distilled and bottled right on-site. Along with our newest addition, Mayport Moonshine, we've got something to offer everyone. We hope to see you soon!
Customers have called our distillery a "hidden neighborhood gem" and we find that hard to argue. Come in, cozy up on the couch or at the bar, and enjoy our specialty hand-crafted cocktails. With so many options ranging from freshly made infusions, exclusive syrups, fine frozen concoctions and boozy popsicles, you're sure to discover a new favorite!
Explore the uniquely warm ambience with your favorite crowd, catch up and play games on our whiskey barrel tables, or stop by for trivia, name that tune, live music, Jags watch parties, or any of our monthly events.
Come explore our intimate distillery, check out the stills and barrels where all our top quality spirits are created, and explore our brand-new space covered in local art and tons of charm. Learn what goes into the creation of our products and enjoy a tasting during one of our appointment-only tours led by distillery co-founder, Paul Grey. Please contact us to book a tour. We can’t wait to show you around!
Our goal from day one has been to offer a unique event space that will make any event special and memorable. We now have the ability to host events to meet your needs from Corporate Events, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Birthday parties and more. Email us with your ideas or to learn more about what we can offer.
Our distillery welcomes your fur friends as long as they are leashed at all times. We appoint family hours to provide our patrons with the best experience. After 7:30pm the distillery is 21 and up. A corkage fee will be applied to outside beverages.
