American whiskey ages in white oak barrels at TOPO Distillery.
TOPO, Top of the Hill Distillery, the brainchild of owner Scott Maitland and Spirit Guide Esteban McMahan, is located in the old N&O Building on Franklin Street. Making gin, vodka and American whiskey from locally sourced wheat, they are one of the few distilleries bringing organic liquor to ABC shelves around the state.
