The Perfect Pairing: French Lick Winery & Spirits of French Lick

Forget a staycation. Visit Southern Indiana’s perfect pairing, the French Lick Winery and enjoy the spirits of its adjacent distillery, and you’ll be transported to a heavenly locale that feels otherworldly.

Extol’s Must-Savor Summer Spot, the winery offers guests the opportunity
to sample the libations, enjoy a glass – or a bottle – on the patio or in The
Vintage Café, or purchase what you desire for a picnic or gathering. Café fare
is fresh and exquisite. The pizza dough is crafted from a more than 100-year old
recipe straight from Naples, Italy, and the staff makes everything with
the utmost attention – from croutons to meatballs. There are vegetarian and
gluten free options (including cracker, bread and pizza!), too. Menu items
include a divine Charcuterie Board, meatballs, and other starters; pizzas
of all varieties; pastas (vegetarian and gluten free options); salads; a kids
menu (Pizza Taco with a side of grapes, anyone?); gourmet coffees; and a
decadent dessert list, too.

Spirits of French Lick




Gamblers and gangsters, artists and architects, frontiersmen and businessmen, heroes of sport and especially the wayward backwoods distillers that kept the social castes, well, sociable, these ethereal inhabitants of French Lick’s past were truly a restless bunch. The legends alone would be enough to guarantee a place in any history book, but the final paragraphs have yet to be written for this rediscovered bastion of Americana. 

Spirits of French Lick is leading the way for Indiana distillers by bringing the artisan distilling industry and its inseparable history back to the Southern region of Indiana. The goal is to represent both the quality and the history of Hoosier distillation, presenting an untold and ever-unfolding story about the nature of distillation in the state while exemplifying and expanding upon what that industry has evolved into. 

Spirits of French Lick is precise in the way they represent who they are and what they produce, playing the part of both distiller and historian. 



This approach gives a very unique place in the industry, not just in terms of the story of Spirits of French Lick, but also the methodologies of double pot still distillation, retention and concentration of flavors. They rely on both time-tested practices and new innovations in our distilling program. 

Through these processes, they craft a spirit that has defined character, equally driven by grain, barrel, yeast and experience and following Spirits of French Lick’s only rule: “Respect the Grain.”
