Renea McQuiggan, president of Carefree Spirits Distillery

Renea McQuiggan, president of Elysian Desert Distilleries, Inc., announced last month that that the company is changing its name to Carefree Spirits Distillery.

She said, “We are very excited to expand our operation in the same town where Carefree Bourbon and Chakra Vodka came to life.”

McQuiggan also announced the purchase of a 1-acre parcel of land in Carefree on Cave Creek Road just past Tom Darlington. 

“This parcel is in an amazing location for the company to build the distillery bottling plant, tasting room, gift shop and event center. We believe this will become a destination location as the company expands its production to a national level,” she added.

It is anticipated that the new distillery operations could open by the middle of 2022.
