  • Needle in a haystack. What a gem of a little place to have found. Cozy and historic. The best best spirits and liquors tasting we've ever had.
  • An amazing, must visit place in The Charles Town, WV area. We saw it on the web and decided to stop by. The liqueur tasting of their products is very well done and entertaining by excellent staff, especially Rob. The liqueurs are locally produced and bottled and are award winning, excellent, and amazing liqueurs. We highly recommend you make time if in the area to visit this small specialty liqueur distillery.
  • Happened upon what we thought was a cool place, a distillery. Having tasted moonshine as a teenager my palate has considerable improved since then and upon my first taste of the Lemoncello I was reminded how truly awful moonshine is. Trying to disguise the unsophisticated bitterness of moonshine with lemon zest and corn syrup will not work and at $24 for a tiny bottle classifies this distillery as more a tourist trap than anything I imaged a distillery could be. Having left after tasting the second terrible concoction, I have to say that was not the worst bitterness of the place. The most bitter thing there was a pitiful lady attempting to be entertaining by declaring herself Catholic 5 times a minute in the first 4 minutes of her presentation ( I counted ). I'm not Catholic so please someone explain why that religion is so funny? My recommendation is pass by this place and spend that $24 on a nice balsamic and develop your palate rather than destroy it with what tastes like a kerosene lemon drop shooter, or as my girl said, cough syrup. The tasting here obviously left a bad taste in my mouth but more from the unsophisticated nature of the presentation than the unsophisticated nature of this, so called, distillery's products.
  • What a great place. If you have not been here you should go. It is completely different than any other place in the area. Smell everything and listen to funtender.
  • Fantastic place to visit, especially after meandering around Harper's Ferry. Tastings are free and the flavored moonshine is delicious. Definitely worth a trip.
