Kinston power plant to become craft distillery

KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – The old power plant in Kinston will soon be getting a makeover Gov. Pat McCrory announced the Social Beverage Company will be adding a craft distillery to the area.

Mayor B.J. Murphy said a lot still had to happen before groundbreaking, but it is a positive change for the city.

He said the new addition will not only boost economy for the city, but also add to the attractions Kinston has to offer.

“There is a lot of incredible opportunities here, and I think that’s what the developers really see…in Kinston — a market being something that they can certainly make a profit from.”

New jobs to come with the project include management production and sales.
