  • Castle and key was a ton of fun to tour around! Most distilleries will give you a quick tour with some facts and then take you to the tasting. Castle and key had excitement and history in their tour. It was a walk through the past which was really great to experience! They had some fun add ins in regards to prohibition. The grounds were beautiful, the employees were kind, and the tasting was fun. Thank you to the castle & key team for the memory!
  • We did the Castle & Key Experience. We got so much great and interesting information, and the grounds were beautiful! Rich and Abigail were wonderful tour guides. We would love to come back another time and take this tour again - or another one! Plus their gin is delicious!
