Company Name: Georgian Craft Distillers LLC

Location: Kolkhida village, Zugdidi, Georgia

Brand: Homely

Historical Background:
Georgian Craft Distillers LLC traces its roots back to the early 20th century when Mr. Niko Dadiani, the chief prince of Samegrelo, invited two German friends to Georgia in 1919. Enchanted by the region, one of these German visitors purchased land in the village of Etseri, near Kolkhida. They began cultivating fruits and corn to produce whiskey, gin, and vodka. With the expertise of German engineers, they established a small railway connecting Zugdidi to Poti, facilitating exports to Europe and the USA.

The original distillery operated until 1920, when the arrival of communism halted its activities. Today, remnants of the old factory and stories passed down through generations testify to its legacy.

Revival and Modern Operations:
In 2013, Mr. Trankle and his wife Manana revived this rich historical legacy by establishing Georgian Craft Distillers LLC. They built a modern distillery equipped with the world’s best craft stills from the renowned German Müller company, custom-designed to meet the highest standards. This state-of-the-art facility honors traditional methods while incorporating modern technology to produce exceptional spirits.

Product Range:
- Fruit Vodkas: Our flagship products include ultra-premium vodkas made from locally sourced, organically grown fruits such as feijoa, mandarin, and quince. Each bottle captures the essence of Georgia’s abundant natural resources and agricultural heritage.
- Alcoholic Gin: Utilizing our world-class Müller Aroma Distillation Unit, we create premium gins with a rich botanical profile. Our gins blend juniper, coriander, lemon, and other locally sourced botanicals to deliver a refined and balanced flavor.
- Non-Alcoholic Gin: Responding to the growing demand for mindful drinking options, our non-alcoholic gins offer the complexity and enjoyment of traditional gin without the alcohol. These gins are crafted with the same dedication to quality and flavor.

Commitment to Quality:
Our dedication to quality begins with our ingredients. We partner with local farmers who practice organic farming, ensuring that our fruits and botanicals are free from harmful impurities. Our water, naturally pure and free from minerals, enhances the smoothness and clarity of our spirits without the need for additional treatment.

Production Excellence:
Our distillation process is a blend of tradition and innovation. The Müller Aroma Distillation Unit allows for precise control, ensuring that each batch meets our exacting standards. This commitment to excellence results in spirits that are pure, smooth, and full of character.

Our 400 square meter facility includes a state-of-the-art distillery and a welcoming tasting tour space. We invite guests to explore our distillation process, taste our products, and learn about our rich history.
