“Great tour and a neat place!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

I didn't have many expectations going into this tour, it was just a last minute stop, but it ended up being fantastic! The little museum in the beginning has lots of cool things to look at and our tour guide (I believe his name was mark) was extremely nice and entertaining. He had us all cracking up the whole way through. We got to go in where they have all the big stills and learn how the alcohol is made in them and then he took us to a little bar area and showed us how to make 2 signature drinks and we got to sample them. They even had little non alcoholic drinks for the kids on the tour (it gets pretty hot inside the room with the stills). We were then took into the gift shop where they had lots of cool things and everything you needed to make the drinks they let us sample. It was very well put together, very informative, and you can tell they take a lot of pride in their product and their company. It was awesome to get to support such a great local business. I would definitely recommend to everyone I know!

“Great new attraction in St. Augustine”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We have been to St. Augustine many times and did just about everything there is to do, but it was the first time we visited this relatively new attraction.
Very satisfied about the experience and impressed by the quality of the venue, tour and local involvement of the community.
It is free, very entertaining and a demonstration that, as a country, we are still committed to our environment and proud of "made in America".
We highly recommend it and, if you like Vodka and or Gin, a way to have a good time and contribute to the local economy.

“Great food, drink, & tour!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We had a wonderful lunch at the Ice Plant & then proceeded to Distillery for tour. Our tour guide was "Lawyer Lou" & he was a perfect fit for the character of a tour guide. Just loved the whole concept of their business model & philosophy. One of the best stops on our mini vacation!

“I'm sure it's fine, but...”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

We were told it was within walking distance of our B&B. It was a jaunt. We took a cab back. That was, AFTER we found the place. There is little to no signage, and the location made me uncomfortable. We had to ask several people and call just to find it. Once we got there, we missed the tour and decided not to wait, but join in at the gift shop. Because they are a new attraction, the whiskey and rum were still being aged in barrels.All they had to offer were vodka and gin. No, thanks. Neat looking place, though. We went to a distillery in Gatlinburg, so I'm sure it's probably just as fun. I think we just had bad timing.
