ROXBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Elliott Davis had spent almost four decades in finance when he realized he was spending too much time traveling for work.

He turned his attention to home, and then to a historic slot of land along the Shepaug River in Roxbury.

The site, which used to be a 1872 train station and a 1860 cigar factory, is now home to the Mine Hill Distillery following a three-year restoration project.

“We’re making something again here on this property,” Davis said.

The distillery makes five different types of spirits and has won awards for its restoration projects.
