128 years ago, the Bristol Phoenix proudly reported that "this year, New York came to Bristol"! The paper was referring to the two America's Cup contenders designed by Captain Nat and built at HMCo. for the 1893 contest. This was the first America's Cup with a defender hailing from Rhode Island; all previous defenders were built in Boston, New York or Delaware. The Rhode Island candidates were VIGILANT (HMCo. #437) and COLONIA (HMCo. #435). VIGILANT went on to successfully defend the Cup, and COLONIA (later, CORONA) had a long racing career of her own.

Cisco

Sponsor

Nantucket Vineyard was the first arm of our business opening in the early 1980’s as a small project of the Long Family.  After a few years, Winery employees ended up falling in love with the wine and each other, and voila! – Cisco Brewers was born on the Hudson’s stovetop in 1995.  Whispers of a brewery floated on the Nantucket wind, catching the ear of a few people, including a Mr. Harman.  Using the previously tested and proven formula of starting a business from another business, Winery and Brewery employees enjoyed a few glasses / pints (respectively) together and hatched the idea for Triple Eight Distillery in 2000.   All three businesses are constantly evolving, and we now produce a wide variety of world-class wines, beers, and spirits.  Come out and enjoy our Nantucket haven- just prepare yourself in case your mind blows up from all the awesomeness.
