I took my husband for his birthday. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. I declined my samples, but my husband really enjoyed his. Plan to eat and drink in the Hunt Room afterwards

We loved the tour. Rebecca was awesome- knowledgeable and personable. I didn’t know the difference between bourbon and whiskey and now I do! And I believe I am officially a bourbon drinker. 😊

Really enjoyed the Tarnished Truth Distillery tour in the Cavalier Hotel. Lexi does a great job teaching you about the distillery process and then coaching you through the tasting of their moonshine and bourbons. This is really worth doing if you are in VB.
