For $5 you can get four very small shot samples of their distilled alcohol. Staff members are friendly and knowledgeable. I especially liked the maple infused bourbon. I would have purchased a bottle if I had room in my suitcase.

Small but very good distillery. Very friendly and accommodating host. The tasting is worth the $. Try the original vodka and bourbon -- excellent..... and the bourbon flavored maple syrup is a treat. Everything is a bit pricey but excellent quality.

Smugglers’ Notch Distillery sells THE BEST alcohol I have ever tasted. The vodka is smooth, the whiskey is, too. They do a tasting for $5. Well worth it.

Small tasting room offering small batch vodkas, gin, rye & bourbon. Very entertaining staff. A fun stop - of course we enjoyed the tastings and bought a few bottles to bring home. It's worth a stop.

A really neat tasting room. You must try the bourbon and the rye. Quite possible the best rye I’ve ever had.

Came here on a very wet day to escape the rain and decided to do a small tasting which was very enjoyable and educational. There are a range of locally made spirits available for purchase including gift sets. There are also some interesting Maple Syrups.

This is a small and I mean small tasting room. There is a larger one closer to Waterbury, it is just bigger and more crowded. Both have the same items. They charge $4 for four “not even an ounce” tasting. The tasting amount was minuscule....More
