MY FIRST VISIT TO NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY

My wife Sharon and I love finding unique spots in Florida to visit on the weekend. One weekend in June, I decided on My First Visit to Njoy Spirits Distillery, a Florida Maker of 100% Rye Whiskey (100 Proof Wild Buck Whiskey), Sugar Cane Juice 100 Proof Mermaid Rum, and 150 Proof “Ryes In Shine” Moonshine.

You have to load your navigation system with 13243 Commercial Way, Brooksville, FL, to get to NJoy Spirits Distillery. Google Maps, Waze, and Apple Maps attempt to take you through a gated community you can’t cut through (NJoy is working with the navigation company to fix this bug).

This address is the entrance to the “Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area,” off Highway 19. Once you enter the reserve (You DO NOT need to pay the reserve entrance fee if you are going to NJOY SPIRITS), follow the NJOY signs for 5 Miles to the Entrance of Goff Ranch.

MY FIRST VISIT TO NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY

NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY is a beautiful operation. It has a bar, distillery barn, and cleared land on their 80-acre Goff Ranch. The cleared land is where the Sugar Cane for their Mermaid Rum and the Rye for their 100 Proof Wild Buck Whiskey and 150 Proof “Ryes In Shine” Moonshine grows. The Distillery Barn is where the Sugar Cane and Rye is turned into the smoothest Whiskey, Rum, and Moonshine you will ever taste!

Also, on My First Visit to Njoy Spirits Distillery notice on their website (https://njoyspirits.com/) all of the annual awards they have won. Any year you don’t see an award was because they didn’t have the time to enter.

The two owners, Natalie and Kevin Goff run the day-to-day operation. On any given Saturday or Sunday, from 11-6 when they are open, they will both be giving $8 tours (adults only; ticket prices 100% credited towards any bottle purchase) and running the Tasting Room and Store. Besides being able to sample their liquors, they also sell various local-made products, plus t-shirts, liquor glasses, and more in their Store.

When the weather cools a bit in the fall, they hold concerts on their outdoor stage with seating. Tickets quickly sell out.

You can decide on My First Visit to Njoy Spirits Distillery to be as little as an hour or as long as you like. The bartender is Robin, who serves excellent drinks and snacks, and is the NJOY SPIRITS photographer.

We’re about out of the Mermaid Rum we bought, so a return trip in July is a “sure thing.” We could buy the Wild Buck Whiskey and Mermaid Rum at a local liquor store, but the drive and scenery are a great local weekend afternoon trip.

So plan your own My First Visit to Njoy Spirits Distillery soon!

NJoy Spirits Distillery was founded in 2012 by Natalie and Kevin Goff. They bought 80 acres inside the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area on which they formed Goff Ranch, home of NJoy Spirits Distillery.

NJoy Spirit’s Distillery is a family-operated Florida Rye Whiskey distiller in the heart of the nature coast. We wanted to make America’s finest 100% Rye Whiskey when we started making our Wild Buck American Rye Whiskey! We are confident we have achieved that (and Wild Buck Whiskey has many awards to prove it!) and have no doubt you’ll agree with just one sip!

Wild Buck Rye Whiskey is smooth, bold, handmade, and bottled at 100 proof. We start by fermenting a mash of 100% farm-fresh rye grain. We grind and cook it daily, one batch at a time. We add no artificial flavorings or color and use only purified ultraviolet filtered rainwater. At NJoy Spirits, we never rush our Rye Whiskey into a bottle. Our Rye Whiskey is aged in custom-made new charred American Oak barrels and developed in the Florida climate. The American Oak barrels give our final product a deep rich flavor with a hint of spice that only grows with time using a smaller barrel – the way Whiskey used to be aged.

Kevin Goff and Natalie Goff started making Wild Buck Rye Whiskey in 2010, and it became available to RNDC in April 2012.

We decided to start distilling Mermaid Rum in 2016 since we added to our property to grow sugarcane. Cane is like grass/bamboo, which grows in most soils. We quickly began racking up many Gold Medal Awards from prestigious groups.

We started the Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine in 2017. As you know, Moonshine is the same thing as Whiskey – just never aged in oak barrels and higher proof, and people asked for it, so that is why we decided to bottle that product.

We wanted to make products that used crops we could grow here on our farm. The type of corn we tried to make Bourbon with wasn’t growable in Florida, so we chose the 401 black rye, which quickly grows here instead. Our soil is very sandy and not rich. We have had to supplement the Florida soil with many tons of compost for years.

We are very proud that our Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, Mermaid Rum, and Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine have become a reality through many years of trial and error! We realize patrons are the key to our success. If the liquor store you frequently visit does not carry them, kindly ask them to call our distributor (See Shop > Where to Buy).

“Tour & Tastings” of all three of our Florida-grown and made “Wild Buck Whiskey,” “Mermaid Rum,” and “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine” is $8/Adult, but the fee is 100% credited towards our Whiskey, our Rum, or our Moonshine bottle purchase.

Walk around and see where we grow our 100% Rye for our Award-Winning 100-Proof Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, 150-Proof “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine,” and the Sugar Cane for our Award-Winning 100-Proof Mermaid Rum.

Children are welcome but by law are not allowed in the Tour, Tasting, or Bar areas.

For the safety of all, No Pets are allowed to be brought by visitors onto NJoy Spirits LLC Distillery property. Only Service Animals that comply will all rules set forth on the ADA.gov website and are “Always-on-a-Leash” are allowed on NJoy Spirits LLC Distillery property.
