From the sea to your first sip. Tarpon Springs Distillery, located in the former Stephen Katzaras Sponge Company, embraces the unique Greek-American coastal heritage of Tarpon Springs, Florida.

Our flagship spirits, Gramling Woods Moonshine, Papou’s Ouzo, Anclote Gin, and Claresso,  are produced from scratch right on our premises. We use 100% premium malted grains, because we’re determined to use the highest quality ingredients to produce the best tasting spirits.

The owners, Barry and Lisa Butler, and the Tarpon Springs Distillery family invite you to visit, take a tour, and taste our delicious offerings. Learn more about our story...



Enjoy a tour of our distillery and learn how we make ultra-small batch artisanal spirits in our renovated historic sponge warehouse, the former Stephen Katzaras Sponge Company. You’ll see our stills, Amazing Grace and RD2D, hear the story behind their names, and then taste our delicious spirits in our tasting room. There is no charge for the tour and they run every hour, or by appointment.



We’d love to hear from you and will respond to telephone calls and emails personally. We look forward to meeting you!
