Hatch Distilling Company owner Chris Roedl will be one step closer to having his dream realized next month when ground breaks on his 7,250 square foot distillery and tasting room in Egg Harbor. Construction is expected to be brisk as contractor Keller, Inc. has been pre-fabricating the building while Roedl and his father Russ make sure they have the equipment and other materials needed to fill it. Roedl says it will be exciting to see the walls starting to go up.
With the official groundbreaking on February 9, Roedl expects the building to be finished May 1 with visitors being able to sample spirits from Hatch Distilling Company sometime in July.
