When you’re situated in downtown Jacksonville, inspiration comes in droves in Florida’s largest city. Established in the city’s sport district, Manifest Distilling is surrounded by the hustle and bustle of parks and stadiums. It’s that energy that fuels their award-winning craft spirits.
David Cohen had spent his career working in the entertainment industry. But he long harbored a passion for the food, beverage and hospitality industries because of the time he spent around his grandfather’s business in the Caribbean. By 2016, David decided to combine his love of the creative, and his family roots. He teamed with Tom Johnson and together they founded Manifest Distilling.
Gin, vodka and rye whiskey. Each of Manifest Distilling’s craft spirits are award-winning in their own right. They’re the only full-scale, organic distillery in Florida. As such, Manifest Distilling searches for, and sources, their ingredients from across the States to ensure that only the highest quality craft spirit ends up in your glass.
