Legacy Distilling plans to operate in Smyrna, according to its Facebook page.
Legacy will participate in this year’s Delaware Wine & Beer Festival on October 21. No samples are likely at that time, according to the Facebook page.
It would be the first legal distillery in many years for Delaware.
Distilleries have popping up around the country following the success of craft brewers, such as Dogfish Head, based in Milton.
Dogfish Head has been producing small quantities of rum and other beverages at its brewpub in Rehoboth Beach under a law that allows such activities.
