A year ago today, we shared the news on High Bank Distillery Co.'s Gahanna location, and now we’re back with details on its third location in the works.

📍The location

This new restaurant is planned for 28 South State St. in Uptown Westerville, the Columbus suburb where it’s said that Prohibition began. The carefully planned location will tap into the 1900s theme.

“We are renovating the old Post Office building into two entirely new spaces,” said Adam Hines, co-founder + master distiller for High Bank, in a press release. “Actual Prohibition, anti-saloon league propaganda was mailed out from this building, which is amazing to me.”
