  • I had a wonderful time visiting the A. Smith Bowman Distillery this afternoon. Art gave a great tour of the distillery, bottling line and barrel warehouse. It was quite nice to be able to get closer to pieces of the distillation process and barrels than at other distilleries I have visited in the past. It may not be a sprawling botanical garden like the huge Kentucky distilleries, but it was just as enjoyable because it was a smaller operation. The tasting was excellent and the staff was quite knowledgeable and friendly. My only wish would be to see more of the mashing and fermentation process. Overall, a great experience!
  • I've been wanting to do this tour for quite sometime. It was such a great experience. Our guide Andrea was absolutely incredible! I was so impressed by her knowledge and love for these spirits. This by far was one of the best tours I've ever been on. The flavors were beautiful, complex and aromatic. Thank you so much for having us. We can't wait to come back to do another tour and more shopping. VA IS FOR BOURBON LOVERS ❤
