  • Their Strange Monkey gin is now one of my favorites. The Luck 13 whiskey was great as well. I'm not a big fan of vodka or moonshine but they were both really smooth. The owner helped us make our selections and was really friendly and inviting. I tried each liquor straight and then did 2 mini cocktails. One was one of the best Bloody Mary's that I've ever had.
  • Great gin, vodka, grain alcohol and whiskey! A little pricey but and awesome micro-distillery none the less!
  • Great Nelson County experience! There is a cool little shop for taste testing and to learn about how a local distillery makes award winning spirits. I travel for work and stopped in to get some emails done. Had great conversations with staff and visitors. Fast WiFi! You should check this place out.
  • Cozy atmosphere. Indoor and Outdoor seating. Vodka, Grain and Gin for tasting. Bourbon is very new. If you aren't a gin drinker, give theirs a chance, it converted me.
  • Atmosphere was nice, location was nice, and the prices were reasonable. I'm not a liquor drinker, but I appreciate the craft and even enjoyed the gin. Bottle prices were a little high, in my opinion, but then again this might be the only place to buy it. I have seen them recently in Dry85 in Annapolis, MD, but not yet in at a liquor store near me.
