The staff was extremely accommodating! We had three young children with us; 12, 5, and 2, and they were more than willing to work with us to give us the experience we were looking for! Took a tour of the back, Kevin was extremely knowledgable and patient!

We stopped in after attending an event at Bethel Woods. The location is charming and there was live music. An interesting menu of drinks highlighting the spirits created there. We asked for a tour and had a great time seeing the process from start to finish. Our guide was so patient as we asked him many questions. Left with a... More

Stopped in before a concert for a drink ended up telling old stories with some fellow concert goers and the bartender. Left with a purchase of "peace vodka" Loved the bottle hated the price.

This is on one of my routes to where I have hunted for many years. The Distillery was processing, but technically closed for the day, but we found the right guy that both gave us a tour, and tasting, which led us to leaving with quite a bit of their product that we thoroughly enjoyed. One note from the tour... More

While motorcycling with the Babes Ride Out crew, we came across this beautiful place and stopped in to see the Distillery/Restaurant. We were welcomed with open arms and very courteous service. Although we did not "taste test" the bottles offered were so beautifully made, we just had to purchase the "Woodstock" commemorative bottle. All of the bottles are handmade/blown at... More

The tours use to be free and now there is a $3 per person charge. Our tour guide Collin was informative, and knowledgable. It is a sight to see all the plumbing that connects to the very large vats. Upon entering, one can really smell the fermentation taking place. A new storage building was recently added. The drinks and souvenirs... More
