Flat Rock Spirits is a small-batch distillery dedicated to the craftsmanship of distilling natural spirits from local and regional sources. Located in the heart of the Midwest, we use Ohio-grown wheat, corn and barley to ensure that only the freshest ingredients go into making StillWrights Bourbon, Rums and Moonshines.

Flat Rock is located right near the intersection of I-675 and Route 444. When exiting on 444 turn toward Enon. Go a few hundred feet to Intrastate Dr. Follow Intrastate Drive until the hard surface ends and then follow the signs and the gravel road to Flat Rock.
