  • Great tour with our guide Grover - very informative and excellent tasting to cap off the visit. Highly recommend!  more »
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our tour guide, Grover! Took the Hubby for a birthday surprise and he hasn't stopped talking about it yet!!  more »
  • Great tour and guide. Katie at the bar has some creative and very good drink recipes... And both bartenders are helpful and welcoming. Wonderful experience for someone that has been on many distillery tours. Oh bourbon and gin are good as well.
  • Very interesting twist on a craft distillery and the rental area for events was the icing on the cake. Tour guide was great to interact with and made us feel at home. Lots of great information. Would easily be on my list of recommendations. Now I just want to rent the event space to stay in instead of a hotel!
