Learned a lot and had a great time with our excellent tour guide. A nice change from brewery tours. It’s nice that they offer reduced price for designated drivers.

Very informative, and a great way to try out numerous spirits. The orange liqueur is amazing, and so is the Blacksinthe.

The tour was very informative and at a sustainable pace. We weren't rushed but it also did not lag. The drinks were amazing and there was a fun relaxed vibe. Everything was very well kept and the staff was engaging.
