New Dayton distillery sets opening date

The distillery will offer samples of its Belle of Dayton Small Batch Vodka and will also have t-shirts and glassware for sale.

LaSelle and his two brothers, Tim and Murphy, will oversee the new distillery and tasting room. Plans call for producing old-style rum, bourbon and single-malt whiskey.

“We’ve been working on this for three or four years,” Murphy LaSelle said last September. “We want to bring some of the distilling history back to Dayton.”
