In 1913, the two Squibb brothers who managed the column still and distillery passed on. Taking over, collectively, were their seven sons who kept the distillery in operation during some of the most difficult times for alcohol producers. They worked together to rebuild, maintain and move the operation forward through prohibition and war times. To support their country and stay in operation, they used the distillery to produce alcohol for war materials. Without the efforts of these seven sons, our distillery may not be in operation today.
