Popular Distillery & Bar to close after 6 years of business
Corgi Distillery, a popular New Jersey distillery and venue, will be closing its doors later this month on December 30. The distillery’s closure is due to a lease dispute, and the company is currently exploring options for continuing operations elsewhere.
Speaking on Instagram, Corgi announced the closure adding: ‘With a heavy heart, we thank you all so so much for your support over the years. Come cheers with us on our last weekend – Dec. 28, 29, 30.’
In the meantime, Corgi will be offering 25% off on all merchandise and bottle sales until supplies run out. The distillery will also be hosting a farewell event on Saturday, December 30, with discounts on cocktails, bottles, and merchandise, as well as live entertainment.
Established in 2017, Corgi Distillery’s unique blend of industrial and British parlor atmosphere resonated with patrons, and their signature Earl Grey Gin quickly became a local favorite.
Corgi Distillery was a pioneer in the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood, paving the way for other businesses like 902 Brewing Company. The distillery’s closure is a loss for the neighborhood, but the company’s hope for a future elsewhere offers some hope for its loyal fans. At this point in time, it is not known what will replace the distillery, nor is the outcome of Corgi yet decided.
