Ground was symbolically broken in the Village of Egg Harbor on Feb. 9 for the Hatch Distilling Co., a 7,250-square-foot distillery and tasting room that will open this summer. Excavation started Feb. 12 and footings will be poured Feb. 19.
The distillery will be located at 7740 Hwy 42 in Egg Harbor.
“Our plan is to build a beautiful space that compliments and enhances the Door County experience. We are looking forward to joining the Egg Harbor business community,” said Chris Roedl, who owns the business with his father, Russ Roedl. The name of the company alludes both to the name of the village and the Roedls’ former business interest in the poultry industry.
