Went to Mississippi Distilling for an initial visit and found it to be great. The product they serve is very good and the service is superior. Was more than I expected and will definitely be a go-to spot going forward.

Tasty, hand crafted liquors! Great cocktails too! Along with fancy mixing techniques. To bad this is 400 miles from home! Great bartending by Ashley! My first choice was a Lost Pilot. Glad I wasn't navigating that night!

The tour is short and sweet but entertaining. The drinks were great—excited to try our Iowish Whisky and Iowish cream. 🙂

It is when they have it. A lot of items are "seasonal"
