"The main drinks we'll be working with are vodka, rum, gin, brandy, and bourbon. We take the carbohydrate source, ferment it into beer or wine, then concentrate it into a spirit," Thomas Soltau, partner of the company, said.

It can be nice to sit outside with a cold beer made in-house with our Louisiana heat.

People under the age of 45 have been shown to be more interested in craft and locally produced beer. Distilleries are becoming the "it" thing to go to now with friends, family, or for events.

Sugarfield Spirits Co. is a new, up and coming distillery that plans to be open at the beginning of 2019. The greatest number of distilleries are located in places like Oregon, California, New York, and Washington. Hopefully, Louisiana will be a part of that list soon.

"The main drinks we'll be working with are vodka, rum, gin, brandy, and bourbon. We take the carbohydrate source, ferment it into beer or wine, then concentrate it into a spirit," Thomas Soltau, partner of the company, said.

Opening the business can create tourism for Gonzales and offer a place to have events for people to host or attend.

"We see Sugarfield Spirits as a great feature added to Gonzales. The city is quickly growing and is between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. This makes it easily accessible to both sides of these cities," Soltau said.

Not only will it reap financial returns for Gonzales, but Sugarfield will be able to offer about nine new jobs with it's opening.

Soltau doesn't want citizens to worry about an increase in 18-wheelers, either, and said, "I plan on using smaller trailers to transport the molasses, or other products, myself."

Councilman Kirk Boudreaux said, "I believe this will be a good investment for the city of Gonzales."

Sugarfield will be focusing on using terroir during operation. Terroir is a set of factors that influences the taste or flavor of a beverage. An example of this is Sugarfield using locally sourced sugar cane for their beverages.

In about six months, Soltau hopes to see everyone thirsty.
