My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and tasting. Our guide (the great niece of Buck) was very personable and informative. We lucked out and got the special treat of having our tasting done by George, the President and CEO. The moonshine was the smoothest I've ever tasted. After he added some mixer to each flavor, they were transformed into delicious cocktails. My sister bought a bottle of every flavor. I highly recommend this tour and tasting. Thanks so much

I booked a tour of Copper Barrel for myself and my best friend for her birthday This was something she had never done before and she’s been watching Moonshiners so she actually knew what he was talking about. It was a great little tour would definitely recommend
