George Smith, president and CEO of North Wilkesboro-based Legacy Libations, announced recently that the company’s newest venture will be built in the Tanger Outlets shopping center of Blowing Rock.

Smith said the distillery will include a souvenir shop, full-service restaurant and craft cocktail bar.

“We are truly honored to work with Tanger and the town to build this exciting new attraction in Blowing Rock and provide the local community with another amazing dining option that will feature exceptional craft cocktails along with a wide array of craft beer, wine and other beverages made in North Carolina” says George.

The original Copper Barrel, located at 508 Main Street in North Wilkesboro (opened in April 2015), will continue to provide tours, cocktails, food and entertainment at its facility. The North Wilkesboro location is also the primary manufacturing facility where their craft spirits and other products are produced for world-wide distribution.

Smith said restaurant with same concept is expected to open at Copper Barrell’s location in North Wilkesboro.
