    I think this place is still finding its feet after only being open about 2 years. To me, there is something "off" about the Feng Shui of the place, and the beer is not very good--seems to be chronic i...  more »

    This is the review I am also posting on Trip Advisor and anywhere else I can We went to the distillery last Friday. We looked it up first as we were doing the beverage trail and could have gone east or west from Fly Creek. Their website said they opened at 11 am. Upon arrival, we noticed that the sliding door had a realtor's box lock on it and the place was closed. The sign in the window said it opened at 11, It was now about 12:15. Address: 11 Railroad Ave, Cooperstown, NY 13326 Hours: Tuesday 11AM–5PM Wednesday 11AM–5PM Thursday 11AM–5PM Friday 11AM–5PM Saturday 11AM–5PM Sunday 12–5PM Monday 11AM–5PM (Here is a screen capture from their website) At any rate, we left and went to our next stop. We asked the waitress if she knew why they had closed- the realtor's box made us believe they were selling the building. She said she thought they moved so we called them. They told us they were open in the same location so after lunch we went back. We entered and went to the counter. The young girl working there saw us and then continued to kneel and straighten some bottles in a cabinet below the counter level. Eventually she turned back to us and asked if we were there for a tasting. I also said we were there earlier and that they were closed and she said they were open. We didn't argue with her at all.When we said we were she asked a gentleman that had just entered as we were answering hr if he wanted a tasting too. He said no he was there to make a purchase. The worker then told us to wait while she took care of him- I have no idea how long it would have made the other man wait while she poured us each a sample but she made us wait. Naturally, she couldn't find what he was after and we waited. I wanted to leave but we needed the stamp for the beverage trail glasses. Finally she finished with him and asked if it was all of us trying and also asked the 2 new people that had just arrived if they wanted to taste also. Of course they said they were there to make a purchase and she once again said we had to wait until she took care of them. At this point we had had enough and we left. We have made purchases there before and even though this time we only wanted 2 bottles of the Spitball and 1 bottle of rum- they lost that sale and any future sales. Really, really bad customer service will not be rewarded if I can help it.

    Terrific little distillery. The distiller was very nice and informative

    Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. They give free tastings of all of their liquors and you can buy bottles and merchandise right in the store. We missed the tour, but everyone who came out said it was fun and informative. The only problem is they don't serve cocktails, but they do own a bar down the street a-ways, so that wasn't too much of a problem.

    They need to be more honest about distilling in Indiana. The vodka was good, made with care on site. Brown liquors - let me mention Indiana again...
