Wasn’t sure what to expect but it was raining out and with friends in for the weekend decided to try something new. Took the journey down to Fredericksburg to see the distillery. Arrived and walked in. They are super prepared for current covid times. Fancy iPad and to digitally take you temperature. We Met our tour guide Erin who definitely loves her job and kept the tour pretty lively. She was great! Learned a lot of fun facts about bourbon whiskey and the company’s history. Great time highly recommend it. Tour ends with a a fun tasting! The company store has lots of great options along with obviously liquor for purchase.

Planned to go anyway while vacationing in the area, but it made a perfect outing for a rainy day. Tour was very interesting and the tasting at the end sealed the deal. Their bourbon is really nice (and we bought several bottles for ourselves and for Xmas gifts) but we were really impressed with the citrus gin...makes a great gin and tonic, perfect for a hot summer evening. Highly recommend!

We so enjoyed our visit to A. Smith Bowman Distillary, listening to the history of their operations and sampling their high quality spirits! Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, welcoming questions throughout the tour, at the same time keeping it all to just shy of one hour. Bought several products in their reasonably price gift shop.

A. Smith Bowman’s Distillery is a great place to learn about Virginia Bourbon. Bowman has won several bourbon awards. They have free tours and free tastings. Plenty of parking and restrooms. They have a gift shop as well. They have events throughout the year, but there is a fee. Check out their IG or Facebook pages for current events. I’ve visited many times with family and friends. Even the non-drinkers enjoy the tour; it’s very interesting.
