Hi CandyPam55! We appreciate the kind words and, like you, eagerly anticipate our move to the tavern. Happy to hear you enjoyed the Picaroon Coffee Liqueur and look forward to five star reviews when you visit us at the new location! :)
We never visited a distillery before but really enjoyed the tour. They charge $5 each and give you a shot glass for the tasting session. We learned a lot about the process and enjoyed some tastes of their libations We aren't liquor drinkers usually but...More
