We enjoyed spending a rainy afternoon learning all about the process and story behind the 1770 Distillery. We also enjoyed sampling the liqueurs. :)

Had a great visit to this distillery and nursery at the Town of 1770. I didn't even know it existed! I will swing by again next time we are in this area of the country.

Stopped in for a quick tasting and info session. The owner is very nice and allowed us to taste all the offerings. We ended buying a few to take home.
