We had previously visited two wineries and was recommended we stop by this place for a new adventure. Jay, the owner, introduced us to wine based vodka. I really enjoyed it as well as the Limoncello. Jay was also nice enough to let us taste...More

They have a nice selection of spirits with unique flavors and notes. Definitely worth checking out. And if you have a non spirit person in the group there are wine tastings attached to the surrounding buildings.

Stopped in here because I love Limoncello and my husband loves single malt whisky. We enjoyed tastings of both and more. Jay was generous with his time and the pours. Bought a bottle of each. Will be back next time we are in the area....More

Been to a few spirit tastings and this place is fabulous. Jay was great. Friendly and so much knowledge this man has. Not only do you get to taste, you also learn the art of spirit making.

The meeting of Jay and his passion for what he does was almost as amazing as how his spirits taste! If I have one thing to say is go out of your way to come and visit this distillery !

First thing I noticed about this hidden gem is how relaxing it is, from its open workspace to the fun tasting experience guided by master distiller&co-owner Jay. Next was the deliciously smooth spirits they bottle and sell !
