Lakeward Spirits Signs On @ The Barrel Factory

The Barrel Factory has announced that it has landed an artisanal distillery called Lakeward Spirits, that will make its home in the Old First Ward. Lakeward Spirits joins Queen City Malting (see here) as a key tenant within the maker’s market. The vision for The Barrel Factory is rapidly unfolding, and with this latest news, there appears to be heightened interest in the building, the market, and the historic waterfront neighborhood.

“We’re excited to be a player in the re-birth of Buffalo’s Old First Ward,” says Adam Bystran, Chief of Distillery Operations for Lakeward Spirits. “As well as in the growing brewing-distilling culture here. With a maltster in-house, whiskey lovers will be able to watch our process from grain to glass.”

Lakeward Spirits micro-distillery specializes in the production of whiskeys, gins, and infusions from scratch. “Lakeward Spirits represents a huge step forward in achieving our vision for The Barrel Factory,” said Bruce Mack, Treasurer of Lazarus Properties, the company that is redeveloping the historic factory building.”

Next up, Lazarus Properties plans on signing up a brewery to the maker’s market, as well as a coffee roaster, cheese maker, special event caterer, and a perfumery. The variety of artisanal food and drink within the building will go a long way towards creating a unique destination in the Old First Ward.

The start-up will Distillery operations are expected to commence this winter. “Look LAKEWARD!”
