2024 Best Place to Grab a Drink, West

GlenPharmer Distillery

From vodka and whiskey to tequila and spiced rum, this “grain-to-glass ” distillery in Franklin whips up nine different spirits to sip in its tasting room and restaurant. Sample them straight in a flight or in any of the custom cocktails — including a whole menu of
smoked options. We settled on the Cranberry
Smash, featuring GlenPharmer
vodka infused with locally grown cranberries,
orange honey, and blood orange
sparkling soda. The food menu,
meanwhile, goes far beyond bar bites,
with standouts including the miso-glazed
tuna with sesame soba noodles. The best
part? You can grab a bottle to go for a
nightcap at home.
