  • Great place to get very inexpensive good drinks. The atmosphere is very relaxing and calm and no crowds. Sweet location for a girls night out to just chill and catch up on gal talk.
  • My fiancĂ© and I were thoroughly impressed by the entire experience! It was our first tour at a distillery and I'm extremely happy we were able to try some of their products! Gave me a new appreciation for liquor.
  • The tour was great and our bartender Ally(ie) was amazing! The tastings were set up so you have to use your nose and palate to enjoy the different spirits and pick out the flavors. They do not tell you which spirit you are trying until afterwards. Very enjoyable. Recommend the White Russian.
  • Been going there since they first opened. Wonderful people, exceptional spirits and unique experience. Mike's tours and Ron's tastings are worth the visit alone. If you're a tonic user, buy there tonic syrup. It is superb. Yo
  • Thanks, Painted Stave, for a fun and informative evening. The tour was fascinating, the tastings surprisingly entertaining in addition to educational and the complimentery cocktail was a bonus!
