About Ernest Scarano Distillery

Ernest Scarano, Sr., served his country during the Second World War, most notably in Operation Torch, November 8-18, 1942, landing with the western task force at Casablanca. A quiet and reserved man, his impression was indelible even to those casually encountered. This distillery is named in his honor.


Ernest Scarano Distillery was established as one of the first A3A distilleries in Ohio. Founded by Ernest Scarano Junior, a catalyst for the inception and success of the A3A legislative approval, his interest quickly developed into an obsession with quality and distinctive character.

Specializing in rye whiskey, Ernest Scarano Distillery produces only a limited number of whiskeys that each display a unique tasting profile and philosophy.

We invite discerning whiskey curiosities to the captivating downtown Elmore, Ohio, to savor our exceptional selection of bespoke whiskey while offering a boutique distilling experience.
