Enjoyed the tour and all the info. Tasting was good, a few we tasted were not available yet. They are going to be good just wish we could of bought one. Worth the trip up to see.

We had a groupon and a private tour as we were the only ones there. Very knowledgeable and extensive tour and the espresso moonshine is to die for. Would have been worth it even without the groupon.

Nice little distillery that opened about 2 years ago. They have a little souvenir/gift shop on site for tourists, & an abbreviated "tour"of the facility. Best part is perhaps the Tasting bar where you can sample the fruits of their labor (so to speak).
