Try something new: Explore one of the distilleries fueling Asheville’s recent craft-spirit boom. The Chemist is a South Slope gin distillery with a tasting room outfitted as a Prohibition-era apothecary. Check out the distillery’s bierbrand collaboration with Burial Beer Co., a relatively new concept in the United States, with German origins. The spirit-beer is unique in that the beer used is fully finished, it’s made with corn in the mash bill and aged in former bourbon barrels. An adjoining cocktail bar, Antidote, offers pre-Prohibition cocktails, new drink classics and a small-plate menu.
