SANFORD, Fla.Loggerhead Distillery in Sanford will now allow guests to enjoy craft cocktails made with their in-house spirits, according to a news release.

The addition comes after the passage of SB 46, which was signed into law earlier this year. The law allows craft distilleries to sell cocktails made from their own products at their distillery.


Loggerhead, located at 124 W. 2nd St., is now planning to expand its existing tasting bar to allow more room for guests to sit and enjoy a drink, the release states.

The News 6 Florida Foodie podcast offers the latest information on the region's dining scene.

“Some of the drinks featured at the bar include the Loggerhead GTR, featuring Loggerhead’s Key Lime Gin with Elderflower tonic and a rosemary simple syrup, and a Cranberry Sour with Loggerhead’s 7x Vodka, cranberry, and freshly squeezed lime juice,” the release reads.
