13th April, 2018 by Amy Hopkins

New Orleans-based Nola Distilling Company has closed down after just three years of operation.

The Nola Distilling Company has closed its doors for good

In a statement on its website, the distillery announced that it will permanently close today (Friday 13 April).

On Facebook, the company said: “It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you all we are closing our doors, effective tomorrow, Friday, April 13th.

“Thank you all so much for supporting us. We are really proud of the team we built, the products that we put out, and those we were developing, but unfortunately we weren’t quite able to make it work.”

Nola Distilling Company was founded by Kirk Coco in mid-2015. The distillery uses sweet potato as the base ingredients for its spirits, which include different styles of vodka, a coffee cordial and a white rum.

Coco also founded the Nola Brewing Company in 2008. According to The New Orleans Advocate, Coco is to step down as CEO and president of the beer maker and will be succeeded by the company’s chief operating officer, Dylan Lintern.
