NJoy Spirits Distillery
Do you love finding unique spots in Florida to visit on the weekend? Then you should visit NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY, a Florida Maker of 100% Rye, Gold Award Winning, 100-Proof "Wild Buck Whiskey", Sugar Cane-based, Gold Award Winning, 100-Proof "Mermaid Rum", and 150 Proof "Ryes In Shine" Moonshine.
NJoy Spirits Distillery is centrally located in Hernando County, about 1 hour Northwest of Tampa. Load your navigation system with 13243 Commercial Way, Brooksville, FL, to get to NJoy Spirits Distillery. This address is the entrance to the "Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area," off Highway 19. Once you enter the reserve (You DO NOT need to pay the reserve entrance fee if you are going to NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY), follow the NJOY signs for ~5 Miles to the Entrance of Goff Ranch, home of NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY.
NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY is a beautiful working Florida Distillery. We are an 80-acre farm growing Sugar Cane for our Gold Award Winning Mermaid Rum and Rye Grain for our Gold Award Winning Wild Buck Whiskey.
We have a beer garden bar (which also serves food), a distillery barn, and cleared land on our 80-acre ranch, Goff Ranch. The cleared land is where the Sugar Cane for our 100-Proof Mermaid Rum and the Rye for our 100-Proof Wild Buck Whiskey and 150-Proof "Ryes In Shine" Moonshine is grown. As you walk about, you will likely see wild turkey and other native "critters" that live on the ranch.
The Gift Shop has Wild Buck Whiskey (100-Proof), Mermaid Rum (100-Proof), "Rise In Shine" Moonshine (150-Proof) bottles for purchase, along with T-shirts, whiskey glasses, and freshly baked goodies (made daily). We also have bees on our property, and fresh honey is available for purchase. Dogs are permitted but must be kept on a leash at all times. Kids are allowed to visit, but they can't be in the tasting room or at the bar.
Also, check out our NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY website (https://njoyspirits.com/) for all the whiskey and rum awards we have won.
The two owners, Natalie and Kevin Goff run the day-to-day operation. We are open to the public only on Saturday and Sunday, from 11-6. $8 tours (adults only; ticket credited towards any bottle purchase) start every 20 minutes, with the last tour beginning about 5:30 pm. Monday through Friday, we are closed to the public, as we need time to do all the required "ranching and farming" to make our award-winning Whiskey, Rum, and Moonshine.
Besides being able to sample and purchase our award-winning liquors, we also sell various local-made products, plus t-shirts, liquor glasses, and more in their Store.
When the weather cools a bit in the fall, they hold concerts on the outdoor stage with seating. Ticket prices are around $20 and quickly sell out.
The visit can be as little as an hour or as long as you like. Our bartender is Robin, who serves excellent drinks and snacks, and is the NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY photographer.
Open year-round, you can follow us on social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. After you visit, please be so kind as to leave your reviews on all of these platforms so your friends can learn about us and visit too!
