Mingo Creek Craft Distillers LLC, a Washington, Pennsylvania-based whiskey maker, has raised $2 million from private investors, according to a regulatory filing.

The company confirmed on Friday that the capital is earmarked for expansion.

“We’re using the proceeds to help build a destination distillery near The Meadows Racetrack (& Casino),” CEO Jim Hough said.

Aiming for a late 2022 completion, the production facility would include a barrel aging warehouse, tasting room and outdoor seating, he said.

Mingo Creek Craft Distillers is a family business that launched in 2016 and is known for its award-winning Liberty Pole Spirits brand of small batch whiskeys.

At present, it employs 15, full- and part-time, and is based at 68 West Maiden St. in Washington.
