  • My husband and I were in Chattanooga for our anniversary weekend. We were looking for something to do that was in doors since the weather was awful. After seeing so many rave reviews, we decided to try out the distillery and we are SO GLAD we did!! Corey was our tour guide and did an incredible job. At first, i thought it was going to be a very scripted and rehearsed explanation of the distillery, but even when asked several in depth questions, Corey knew the answers and explained everything perfectly. His sense of humor and knowledge made the whole experience great. I also figured the tasting would be a splash of whiskey in a small glass and they'd call it a day, but i was pleasantly surprised by the flight we received at the end of the tour. You are given 4 different whiskeys & 2 mini whiskey cocktails to try. For the $12 price tag of the tour, id say that was more than a decent tasting! Lastly, Corey recommended a restaurant for us to try for dinner, Main Street Meats. I am so glad we chose to go! It was hands down the best meal we've ever had. Thank you Corey, and the entire Chattanooga Whiskey staff for a fantastic last day on our trip!!
  • Full house for the tour, but still felt intimate. Our tour guide Smiley was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. The history of distilleries and prohibition were concise and we'll explained. After all that the whiskey tasting was wonderful. Four different bottles, and two very popular cocktails rounded out a wonderful evening. Thanks to Chattanooga Whiskey and tour guide Smiley! Will definitely be back again.
  • Katelyn was our guide. She did a great job. The different blends of bourbon and whiskey were complex and interesting. This was a last minute trip and I am glad we did it. You will not be disappointed!
  • We had Smiley for a tour guide, and her knowledge of the company, and the history, as well as the whiskey and bourbon distillery process was awesome! She gave the impression that she had a personal stake in the success of the company. Great attitude and awesome tour! I will definitely take friends there if we find ourselves back in ChooChoo.
  • Corey was an awesome tour guide ! The place is beautiful and everyone is super friendly! Great place to have some great whiskey! 10/10 recommend taking the tour.
