Dogged State Distillery plans to operate in about 10,000 sq. ft. of this 25,000 sq. ft warehouse owned by Joe Ragan of Kenbridge. Warehouse is located on North West Avenue adjacent to the Town’s industrial park.


Distillery request advances, hearing set for Monday


Blackstone -- which a century ago was a stronghold for Prohibitionists and which was the last town in this area to get a state liquor store -- is about to become the first to welcome a distilled spirits plant.

Town Planning Commissioners last week voted unanimously to recommend approval of the request by Lance Dorin of Blackstone and Lester Steele of Amelia.

They plan to launch “Dogged State Distilling Company” in a portion of the 25,000 sq. ft. warehouse building on North West Avenue near the Town’s industrial park.
