  • We were first time visitors to a distillery. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a change of pace to do a flight of small cocktails, instead of beer. We ended up purchasing s bottle of honey rye whiskey. It is amazing.
  • 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.
  • Good liquors, but the all of the drinks that my party ordered on our visit turned out way too sweet.
  • Awesome!! If you're on 151 you must drop in! Best spirits around
  • They make great stuff. Especially the gin. Nuts.
