  • Stopped in for a tasting/drink and pleasantly surprised. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect spot to relax. We loved it so much we stopped in again later in the day for another drink...  more »
  • Nice tasting room perched on a hilltop with indoor and outdoor seating and gorgeous mountain views. The bourbon is very good too.  more »

  • Excellent product and excellent drinks. You can choose a flight or have them mix up a drink for you. All mixers are housemade with thought. You won't find that "too sweet" drink here. Come before 3 for a fresh grilled burger. They also sell their own steaks and ground beef. Yum.
  • Visited on a wine tour. Nice change of pace and less pretentious. Staff knowledgeable. Well or tap water goes into limestone and is good for drinking and making bourbon. You have to wait for a specific time to do a bourbon flight but that is apparently an ABC rule. Cocktails and straight drinks readily available. Quality bourbon with rye. Beautiful oak. The have burgers from cattle raised on the bourbon grain mash. Burgers made to order and delicious. Walked down the hill for an informal tour of the distillery and barrel barn. The smell of the barrel barn is a delight. They have a horse barn and chickens too. The view from the tasting Lodge is beautiful and makes sipping bourbon an experience. They sell beef plate ribs which surprised me. Made them at home (7 hours low& slow) and were very juicy and tender. There is a llama farm on the road in.
