Cane Distillery On Suncoast

The Florida Cane Distillery

The Florida Cane Distillery
1820 N 15th St Tampa, FL 33605

Florida CANE Distillery’s story here on the Suncoast started about 15 years ago when Lee Nelson, a home-brew hobbyist, moved from Rochester, New York, to Florida. In a small garage in South Tampa, Lee built his first still out of three Miller Lite cans, marbles, and a pressure cooker and distilled a batch of beer. As Lee’s new hobby morphed into an obsession, he started sharing the not-quite-legal product with his beer-drinking hockey team. One particular teammate and good friend, Pat O’Brien, quickly connected the dots between craft brewing trends and what would eventually happen with distilled spirits. And after talking about it for over two years, the teammates, along with Lee’s wife Sarah, met at O’Toole’s Irish Pub in Brandon and hatched a plan to bring this crazy idea to life. Today, we’re makers of small-batch artisan sugar cane vodka, gin & moonshine — all flavored from local ingredients. Please come visit us for a tour and tasting, and follow us on social media as we continue to explore, experiment, and distill the Spirit of Florida.

Hours: Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday/Saturday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
