  • Just passing through the area and stopped to check them out. Great tour and tasting. James knows his stuff and explained the process and history very thoroughly. Tastings were great- our top pick: Junior Walton’s Premium Select. Pick up a bottle in an NC ABC store near you. Looks like they hold great free music events here too- bluegrass & local food. We’ll come back!
  • Took the family to check them out. What a great experience. The staff was great. The tour of the distillery was great. Great information about the process and history of the products. The tasting of the spirits was a blast. The gift shop was great as well. The fact they have open house events is a huge plus as well. Free food, music, and tasting equals a great day of fun. Help support your local distillery and check them out.
  • If you ever get some free time in North Carolina, go visit the distillery! Everyone was super sweet and eager to teach everyone how they make their products. I would recommend this to anyone!
  • What an outstanding place! The people there are super friendly, the whiskey was excellent and the shop has everything a person could ask for in the way of gifts or decoration. We did a tasting and everything was top notch, smooth with just the right amount of kick.
  • Very friendly staff. We really enjoyed the tour and the free shots. We would go back for sure.
