Purchased in December 2017, the Black Diamond Distillery is part of the Fermentation Science program at Hocking College, a two-year degree program focused on brewing, distilling, viticulture, and fermented foods.
The program is currently the first of its kind in Southeast Ohio and is the first in the nation to offer students the opportunity to learn how to make beer, wine and spirits.
Founded in 1870, New Straitsville, Ohio, traces its beginnings to the New Straitsville Mining Company that founded the small Southeastern Ohio community. Although coal mining ended in 1884, the town continues to reflect the rich traditions and work ethic linked to its formation.
New Straitsville is now famous for its annual Moonshine Festival, held annually on Memorial Day weekend.
