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.
