Leiper's Fork Distillery

Just before the pandemic started, Leiper’s Fork Distillery was getting a really good thing going. They had live music — folks like Chris Stapleton would show up for open mic nights — and the location out in bucolic Leiper’s Fork just made it all the better. It’s not just a good place to hang out though — their small batch whiskey is delicious, particularly the rye. Summer’s coming, and if you’re looking for a place to spend an evening drinking under the stars, this is your place. AMANDA HAGGARD
