Beautiful place that was restored from under the weeds! Murray was an excellent guide. He taught us a lot of the history and the drinks were amazing.

Really great informative tour with Aaron! Very interesting to see the process up close of how the spirits are made. Aaron needs a mike so he can be heard and not ruin his voice. Outdoor garden gorgeous! Only advice is keep the outdoor bar open longer as this was so relaxing to relax by the River. Best cocktails ever!❤️
We visited Castle & Key to celebrate our anniversary. Aaron was a great tour guide, and we loved hearing about the history of the distillery. The drinks were great, and the bartender went above and beyond to help my husband decide on which batch of whiskey to purchase. The staff in the gift shop were super friendly, as well as the check-in attendant who warmly welcomed us when we arrived. We came home with a bottle of their Restoration Rye Whiskey and a bottle of Sacred Spring Vodka (amazing by the way). Highly recommend visiting this unique destination!
