Mine Hill Distillery is the perfect venue for your wedding, rehearsal dinner or local celebration after a destination wedding. Having four buildings, totalling 12,000 SF and a riverfront location is suitable for an intimate dinner party to a large indoor/outdoor celebration. The fully restored and unique spaces as well as the classic New England setting provides the perfect backdrop to a casual or elegant event. We would welcome the chance to show you around and make your vision a reality.
An 1872 train station is our primary event space, which blends an iconic exterior and striking interior design that highlights period details with all the modern conveniences. The Station has a full bar, sound system, two large bathrooms and is ADA compliant. The building has six doors opening onto a wrap-around porch, which provides an indoor/outdoor feel. A frame tent can be erected adjacent to the Station, further expanding the capacity.
The Founders’ Room is located on the second floor of the Distillery and is an intimate space that could be used for a bridal party, a sophisticated bachelor’s evening or an intimate space for a small rehearsal dinner or cocktail party. The stylish interior features wide plank floors, a fireplace, 1790s wood paneling, two large cigar humidors, custom dining tables and a casual seating area. An audio/visual system is discreetly hidden behind a birch bark wall. This space is not ADA compliant.
The 3.5 acre property is situated along the Shepaug River and includes a dramatic waterfall, level lawns and western views. It is adjacent to a 360 acre nature preserve with hiking/biking trails and historic ruins. Tents of varying sizes can be sited throughout the property. There is ample parking and valet & shuttle services are available.
An event using the entire property could include a riverfront ceremony, cocktails in the Distillery, a dinner/dance in the Station and late evening s’mores or drinks at the fire pit.
