Ryan & Wood Distillery wins 2013 “Best of New England – Editors’ Choice” in Yankee Magazine
Ryan & Wood Distillery has been recognized as a 2013 “Editors’ Choice” winner for Best Distillery Tour in Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England, on newsstands now. This designation is awarded by Yankee’s editors and contributors, who select restaurants, lodgings, and attractions in New England for the exclusive list. For 37 years, Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England has been the most widely distributed and best-selling guide to the six-state region.
President Bob Ryan noted that he was particularly honored to be recognized for his tours. “From the start, we aimed to embrace tourism as part of our business. We are proud to bring people to Gloucester and draw attention to the region.” Bob’s wife Kathy, who leads most of the tours, added “giving tours requires a big portion of our day but it’s time well spent. We are happy to have a great mix of locals from the community and visitors from all over the world. We try to represent Cape Ann with each tour and each bottle.”
Distillery tours are offered twice-daily Monday through Saturday at 10:00am and 1:00pm. On any given day visitors may witness fermenting vats of molasses for Folly Cove Rum, hand-milling of grains for Ryan & Wood Straight Rye Whiskey, or perhaps Bob himself at the still, taste-testing his distillation of Beauport Vodka or Knockabout Gin.
Yankee Magazine’s May/June 2013 Travel Guide, on newsstands April 23, features 317 “Best of New England — Editors’ Choice” winners, which include the region’s best attractions, food & dining, lodging, and bargains.
