The past, the present and the future of O4D.

In February 2023, the renowned Old Fourth Distillery was officially acquired by Shortbarrel Bourbon, a well-respected player in the spirits industry. This acquisition marks the next chapter in the story of Old Fourth, a distillery that has captivated the hearts of connoisseurs for years. 

With this strategic partnership, Shortbarrel Bourbon aims to preserve the distillery’s rich legacy while infusing its own expertise to unlock new levels of craftsmanship and innovation. The coming years hold exciting prospects as this dynamic collaboration sets out to redefine the artistry of spirits and create unique libations that will leave a lasting impression on the discerning palates of whiskey aficionados. 

Old Fourth Distillery is now making bourbon in Atlanta for the first time ever!


Old Fourth Distillery proudly stands as Atlanta’s first legal distillery since 1906. Once nestled in the heart of the historic Old 4th Ward, the location became a gathering spot for many. From 2014 to 2022, they meticulously crafted their spirits, utilizing a state-of-the-art facility that seamlessly integrated cutting-edge technology with time-honored techniques. Every drop of our exquisite spirits originates from regional, sustainable sources, ensuring a taste that is unparalleled in quality and authenticity.


The original Old Fourth Distillery, loved by many, closed its doors in December 2022. However, the current ownership group found a new home in Norcross, Georgia. This new facility boasts not only the distilling, aging, blending, packaging, and back-office operations but also features a private tasting room where consumers can indulge in the distinct flavors of all Shortbarrel and Old Fourth spirits. 

Join us on this exciting journey as we continue to craft exceptional spirits for you to enjoy.
