Dennis our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable on the entire process and had a good amount of information on how other distilleries do as well. Their bourbon was very good!

Great tour! Dennis was our tour guide and was very informative. We thought the movie buff items around the distillery and the cat were fun touches. Loved the samples and enjoyed our drinks. The couches were super comfy and we enjoyed playing darts afterwards.

Enough said. Awesome sauce. Nice way to spend an afternoon sampling the different options. Hellfyre the best!

Dennis gave an excellent tour that kept our teenage kids engaged. He clearly loves his job and is very knowledgeable about the distillery. During our tour we even got to see both of the brothers who started the business. Very interesting.

Great story of how two brothers came together to make a great product. Onsite bar servers some of the favorites to see how their spirits taste in your favorite drink. Nice selection of logo products in the store along with all the spirits they distill.
