Great experience and time
Apr. 2021
We were very glad we made it a point to visit the St. Augustine Distillery!

The distillery itself is in an older building with a lot of history around it and its neighbors. We walked here from Old Town; it wasn't a bad walk, about 15 minutes or so in total.

We entered into the lobby area, where staff greeted us, and explained the self-guided tour process. In this area was a small museum, with some interesting info about the history of the building, and a history of the distillery. The building isn't overly big, so the self-guided tour isn't that long.

The sample ideas were great; at each "station" along the tour, staff provided a sample of a cocktail using one of their spirits. The first sample was in the museum area. The tour then led through the main distilling area, where most of the "magic" happens. It is interesting to see all of the process steps lined up for use. This led to the bottling area, which included another sampling station, with two separate samples. The next step was...well into the sampling bar and gift shop area. The sampling bar included another cocktail sample; plus, the staff there were quite happy to have you sample just about all of the spirits they had available. Like most spirt/wintery/brewery tours, of course the gift shop, with gifts and bottles of their product, are after all of the samples! LOL. Quite an effective strategy....including for us, when we bought two separate bottles of their product.

The staff was incredibly friendly throughout our visit; very knowledgeable, very open to answering and talking about any of their products, and generally made for an incredibly enjoyable visit.

Overall, most of their products were good; we ended up bringing home a bottle of their vodka, and one of their whiskeys. Overall, this was a fantastic stop, and we are very glad we planned on this.

Good whiskey
May 2021 • Couples
This is a small distillery, not much variety in what’s available. Tour is pretty basic, not a lot to see. The prize is the tastings, which are free. Their straight whiskey is very smooth. They make a great old fashioned. E
We bought several bottles and a couple of bottles of mixers.

What a Blast!
Apr. 2021 • Couples
The tour was a lot of fun. They served four different mini-cocktails. At the end you could try any product straight, which was good. These spirits are good quality.

We usually fit in at least one wine tasting on a trip this time we added a distillery and found some unique flavors of whiskey and moonshine.

Too expensive for poor tasting whiskey
Apr. 2021 • Couples
The people were friendly and they had plenty of stock on the most overpriced whiskey I have ever tried. My wife tried the vodka, which its price did not reflect the taste. I would not recommend this to friends.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your visit to the St. Augustine Distillery! As a small, locally-owned business, we take all feedback from our visitors to heart. Our spirits are crafted from local agriculture by our small production team. Each spirit is labeled, bottled and sealed by hand. Our handcrafted process does have an effect on the final price compared to larger retailers who often automate many parts of the process. We feel we charge a fair price for our award-winning spirits, but absolutely understand and respect your opinion. We're grateful for your feedback and encourage you to responsibly enjoy the spirits you prefer. If there's anything else we can do to improve your experience, please don't hesitate to reach out directly to amanda@staugustinedistillery.com. Cheers and be well!

Didn’t spend much time here but it was fun and the Vodka is yummy. Strong but smooth. We would have liked more information, but we understood due to restrictions. Fun free tour.

Quick Tour
Mar. 2021 • Couples
Our tour was self guided due to Covid. There were signs that talked about the distillery but it’s always better when a person tells the story. Sampling of bourbon, gin and vodka was good.

Thank you for the kind 5-star rating! We are so grateful you came to visit. Absolutely, we agree with you that stories are always better told in person. We very much miss our previous guided tour format and are looking forward to getting back to it when it is safer to do so. In the meantime, we're thankful for your patience as we navigate these crazy times. Hope to see you again soon, you are always so welcome here! Cheers!
