Not a whiskey fan, but my husband is. He really enjoyed the whiskey and bourbon. I really liked the vodka and moonshine. And it is really deal moonshine. Women owned and run. Source their Ingredients local. They make a mean margarita with the moonshine.

We visited this distillery and can't say enough about the hospitality, knowledge, and overall friendliness of the staff. The product is terrific as well!!! It's worth the trip to Afton Mountain. I even joined the Gorilla Club!!! Can't wait to attend the events!!!
