“Asheville's finest corn liquor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Great tour, even for someone like myself who doesn't care for moonshine. Our tour was given by Troy's youngest son who is very knowledgeable. He kept the tour short yet explained all about their product from start to finish. I would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Asheville. Even if moonshine is not your thing, it's still worth the tour. I would go again.

“Great product”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Even if you don't like moonshine, you can go for the educational tour and tasting. Watch the hours of the tours and tasting because they are only open for business during that time frame. They don't serve any moonshine cocktails on premise but they do let you sample some on the tour. The tour was given by Troy's son who was clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about the production process. Interesting to walk through the distillery and see the process fro start to finish.

“Best Legal Moonshine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We had three different moonshines sampled on our recent trip and this was the smooooothest of the three. They use a legacy corn grown locally and that's it. It's a small operation so you won't be bowled over by size but the people are real friendly and take the time to explain how the process of distilling works. You can't buy the product here and you will want to buy some just to show your friends that 'shine is not just for taking the finish off furniture but can be sipped and enjoyed.
