Had been to Vegas and stayed overnight in Kingman, went to the museum in the morning and then to the distillery. Surprised that they had this and in the middle of nowhere. There was a tour going on so we didn't stay for the next one but had some tastes and bought some items. Would go back again when we... More

We stopped by because we saw the distillery mentioned in an entertainment magazine. What a great place. They treat you like an old friend coming to visit. We took the tour and the owner gave us the tour, how cool is that! Everyone was so nice and we brought back home his great rum and vodka. They even bubble wrapped... More

The tour was very interesting... Coming from the Midwest and knowing how distilleries worked there it was a unique to learn the differences. For only five bucks apiece you could sample five different types of vodkas and rums. Well worth the stop!!!

Special event night at Desert Diamond DIstillery with live music and hand crafted cocktails made with awesome rum made on premises. Be sure to try a Blackberry Mojito made with the agave rum - so smooth and fresh blackberries, too. We enjoyed the music, the company and the pleasant atmosphere. Thanks to John for making us always feel welcome.

We didn't know what to expect when we walked in, but it was way cooler than I even thought. They treated us like we were old friends & you have to see behind the door. The still is very impressive & the tour is something every one should take. The rum is really great tasting & they also make a... More

Our women's motorcycle group dropped off our motos at our hotels and piled in our local friends' cars to visit this rum distillery about 6 miles outside of Kingman. John gave our group of about 15 women a very informative, fun history of rum distillery in the Arizona-Nevada area. Be sure to ask to taste for the 170 proof sample,... More

Wasn't expecting to find a distillery in an industrial location, I thought there was a problem with the directions. Very nice find. If you don't like straight bourbon, it is nice they offer a nice variety of mix drinks to try the bourbon.

This small family artisinal distillery makes for a fine stop. It is right along the junction of 1-40 and historic route 66. The welcoming owners provide a nice tasting opportunity and a tour of their still and barrel room. Very unique and high-quality rums, and one interesting and tasty vodka. My favorite was their dark rum. Nice gift shop. Well... More

Saw this listed as an attraction in Kingman. Truly is off the beaten path, out in an industrial center near the airport. We ended up driving 15 miles to the place. Little red façade and the door was locked. Sign said ring bell. We were the only ones there until into the tour when 4 other folks showed up. Interesting... More
