Just off the beaten path between Springfield and Brandon, worth a stop if breweries or distilleries interest you. We toured the distillery and sampled several drinks. The staff was great and made our visit fun. I left with a bottle of whiskey to give as a unique gift. They also have personal (small) whiskey barrels available for purchase, which would... More

Rural, unique, small batch, crafted spirits....Emphasis on small batch. They were out of Island Gold and still are. The still was silent on our tour. You would think they would have it running. Speaking of the tour, it isn't worth the drive. A very sweet young lady gave the "tour" but it was less than show and tell. The tour... More

We drove 15 miles north of Branson after lunch to the distillery that was nestled in the woods like an old still! The tour was great and the menu was nice, I purchased the samples of the products and was pleased. Two of the three were smooth and the last was less desirable and just not for me! Overall the...

We were staying at the Bear Creek Bed and breakfast, and decided we wanted to try out this distillery. We took the short tour (about 10 minutes)...it was neat to see how they make it, and we sampled some moonshine (120 proof) and also had a few drinks in the bar (kinda pricey). It's worth a stop if you are... More

We went to this distillery around noon. It wasn't a bad drive from Branson and was worth it. The shine and drinks were great. Dixie was our guide and she was funny and very knowledgeable about the distillery process and the place. The day we went it was raining and only had to walk outside for just a little bit... More

Nice micro distillery tucked in the woods 15 mins from Branson with tours available every couple hours. Tour is small and lasts less than 30 mins. The main area is a pub with live acoustic music playing. Good whiskey and mixed drinks available. It is kid friendly.

They only do a couple of tours a day so call ahead for the times. I wasn't able to do the tour however did indulge in some of their shine. Laura was very knowledgeable about the shine, Leslie has just started and still learning however does a great job and enjoyed the conversation!

We happened upon this distillery and enjoyed the lovely view from their back porch while sipping their amazing spirits they make on site. The bartender was warm and friendly. We enjoyed it so much we returned on the weekend when they had live music outside. Definitely worth the short drive!

Stopped by while spending week in Branson. Tasting room server (and tour guide) was very friendly and knowledgeable. "Shine" was very smooth, "blend" was excellent and rum was favorite for the ladies. Tour of the distillery rooms was interesting. This is a small operation off the beaten path but they are becoming more well known with more retail outlets. Worth... More

Dixie was our host during our tour and she did a great job explaining how moonshine is made and the history of it as well. After the tour in the distillery downstairs we went up to the tasting room for some treats. Tastings of all they had to offer in generous shots were given at $5 for the hubby then... More
