My wife and I enjoyed our tour through the distillery, our hostess was very knowledgeable about the process and explained everything where we could understand it. She just happened to be a chemistry teacher. If you like bourbon, stop in for a taste.

Just a totally amazing place to stop by and watch the distillery operation with a smaller group but BIG, interesting facts. It’s quaint and worth the trip. The collection of items for purchase are more than enough to satisfy you. But the person running the...More

That Terri - how did you stop laughing long enough to take a tour? She's one of our best SPIRIT GUIDES, and she's also an excellent mixologist. Come back soon, and bring your friends. 'Cause THEIR Spirits need Lifting, too!

This is a different distillery to visit. It takes you back in time to the days of Andy Griffith. The tour is somewhat interesting and the sampling after the tour is different.More
