  • I have never actually been here myself but I sent my parents recently for my dad's birthday. I am out of state but wanted to treat them to some samples and/or a distillery tour. I called and talked with Jason and he said he would set them up with a great birthday surprise. My parents had a great time, learned a lot, and got to have many samples. Thank you for your excellent customer service, Jason!
  • On the positive side, tastes are cheap. Otherwise this place was extremely disappointing. The person who helped us was pushy and intrusive. It felt like they were worried we were using the place as a rest stop instead of tasting. Upon arriving we were approached immediately and when we took a seat away from the bar we were approached again even through we asked for a moment to get our baby situated with his bottle. The spirits themselves were frankly some of the worst we’ve tasted. Unnecessarily high proofed and not palatable. This is coming from someone who enjoys whiskey a lot. It reminded us of Popov plus oak.
  • Did a tour with Jim who’s extremely knowledgeable about things he's doing in Grand Traverse Distillery. Purchase an Ole George Whiskey. In the tasting room you must try a Bloody Mary - you'll not be disappointed
  • We had such a great time! Our tour was so informative and we had a great conversation with Lacey, one of the distillers, about what they are doing and how they are different from other area distillers, as well as the more traditional places down in Kentucky. The tasting was delicious....I would recommend the chocolate vodka with some simple syrup added to it. It was ah-mazing. Wishing I had gotten the chipotle vodka and McClure's Bloody Mary mix, but I will just have to check my local liquor store too see if they have it. :-)
  • Great little place to stop and do a tasting. The chocolate vodka is excellent.
