  • My cousin introduced me to Thistle Finch earlier this year and I was immediately a fan. I can't have many of the cocktails due to the extra sugars but love the Black Pepper and Black coffee whiskeys. ...  more »
  • The building is a historic tobacco building from the early 1900’s. We did the tour, guide was fantastic. Tour is free, if you want to taste it is $10 for 9 samples of their whiskey. We had a blast! Th...  more »
  • This was our first time here and it has a great atmosphere. We fee bummed that their aged Rye was OUT for some reason and were not keen on the Pepper or coffee flavor. So we did the white/unaged which...  more »

  • Good local distillery that is setup in an old tobacco shop. The tours are very interesting. Their mixed cocktails are very tasty. The only downfall is in the summer it can be very hot inside the distillery.
  • Absolutely no parking, but it was a great time sampling their liquors and learning about their production. The brewery in the back is very nice as well. super cheap drinks for superior local quality
  • Drinks here are done very well, the Fireside is a favorite. I was with a friend who is pregnant, and she really enjoyed her mocktail- which is delightful. Thank you for the great experience!
  • This charming place serves some of the most unique cocktails made with hard to find rye based whiskey (made on-site). Furthermore the gin is also unique in the fact it is made in the "New American Style". Also hard to find. This is a delightful deviation from traditional gin; which is just vodka and juniper berries. Their gin is made (on-site) with the lowest amount of juniper berries to qualify it as "gin" but with citrus and a slight mint on the pallet. Its quite refreshing. If your not a gin fan try this, it just might change your mind. The "Barrel Rested" gin, is their gin "rested" in used oak barrels that were used to age whisky so it adds vanilla, oak and slight charred flavor to it. This stuff is flat out excellent. There is nothing like it on the market. I highly recommend this place and their spirits. Finally, they share bar space with a craft brewery so if cocktails are not your thing no worries they have the best of both worlds.
  • Great location, drinks are decent. Tour guide was super nice and helpful.
