  • Never toured a distillery - and this one was great! Gin, Vodka, Bourbon, etc - whatever your tastes in the hard stuff. Nice area and town is charming - GO!!! 
  • We usually call a distillery or brewery visit a "drinking with strangers" activity. On Friday they open at 10 so we were the first visitors when they opened. This made it a drinking by ourselves visit...  read more »

  • Amazing distillery run by friendly people. Well worth the stop. They offer a tasting after the free 15 minute tour. We actually signed up to fill our own bottles before arriving (check the website). We were allowed to fill and take home 6 bottles of bourbon and I was able to take home my own empty barrel! Scot showed us around and was more than willing to explain the process of how everything was made. He was incredibly nice and knowledgeable. I tasted the honey infused bourbon and the blood orange drink - both amazing. Highly recommended.
  • Our tour guide was informative and entertaining. The tasting was delicious and fun.
  • This place is a gem. This and Redband are the first two places I recommend to visitors to the quad cities and vicinity. The tour is informative and the tasting room has perfect decor. It's fun. But the real reason for visiting are the spirits. I never liked spirits until I visited this place. I still don't like vodka but I respect the vodka made here. The gin, however, is another matter. Floral and complex, it is exquisite. (A friend and I did a taste test with MRDC and Hendricks and we loved both.) The bourbon is top shelf. I'm glad they are doing larger batches now. Also seasonals such as the coffee liquor are a must. If you have never visited this place, do it. Even though you can find the spirits cheaper in local stores, visit the distillery and buy a bottle.
  • Great stop! Very good whisky and vodka. Worth going in as testing and buying some for home.
  • Excellent stuff. Cody Road is a must try.
