  • Mimi, our tour guide, was great. It was only her second tour and I thought she did an excellent job. My only complaint would be there were only two bourbons we sampled. For 20$, that seems low especially since other establishments were sampling 5 - 6 for much less, averaged about 10$. We were also told we would get an old fashioned, which was not the case. Still a fun find.
  • They did a pretty nice job on the tour, but we had a new guy. I feel like the price was a little high for what you get on the tour. Product is a bit young and it's hit or miss on how good it is. Definitely worth checking out, but I think $20 for that small of a tour might be a but much.
