Hayner Distilling History with Walking Tour and Tasting

October 14, 2023 • 1 - 3PM



The Museum of Troy History and Hayner Distilling are presenting the History of Hayner Distilling with Walking Tour and Tasting on Saturday October 14, 2023 from 1 – 4 pm. Tickets to the fundraising event are $25 and must be purchased from Eventbrite.

This is a fundraising event for the museum and 100% of the sales go to the Museum of Troy History.

The event begins in the St. Patrick Soup Kitchen at 25 N. Mulberry Street in Troy. We will start with a slideshow presentation on the history of Hayner Distilling from Doug Tremblay of the Museum of Troy History.

We will travel back in time to 1866 when Hayner began along the banks of the Great Miami River. We’ll review their tremendous growth into the nation’s largest mail order whiskey business until prohibition shut the doors in 1920.

After the slideshow, we take a short walking tour of Hayner buildings still standing and the remnants of buildings long gone.

The event concludes on the second floor of a 115 year old Hayner Distilling building for a presentation and bourbon tasting with Greg Taylor from Hayner Distilling. Greg will share how the new Hayner Distilling was revived and you will have the chance to try the new Hayner Bourbon alongside other Hayner spirits. (Non alcoholic drinks and snacks will also be available.)

The walking part of the tour involves walking over uneven surfaces, railroad tracks and steps. For the first hour of the event, we will be seated in a handicap-accessible building.

All tickets should be purchased through this Eventbrite website.
