Definition: a place where alcoholic drinks (such as whiskey) are produced
The word was found in Thursday November 20, 2014. The word is in the beginning of the paragraph http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/20/business/energy-environment/from-india-chemicals-for-cleaning-up.html?ref=international. The word was used in these sentence “An engineer by training, Pramod Chaudhari founded Praj Industries in Pune, India, in 1983. The company, which started with 10 full-time employees, started supplying technology for waste water treatment and distilleries.”
I was unsure what the word meant however, I looked up the word and I was surprise of the answer. It had no context clues to that definition I found, however the answer did make senses and distilleries is a place of alcoholic are produced.
