WE had a group of 13- everyone had a good time! WE did the tour and cocktail class. Check Groupon. Hopefully you can allow enough time to walk the property. Allow time to drive, and when you think you are lost, you are almost there!

Enjoyed talking with the bar tender, waitress and distiller. So glad we took a detour from our original planes.

This was our last stop on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail and a pleasant surprise. Tour and tasting was great, loved the history that our guide included. If you visit I suggest you include a trip to the restaurant. Food and service was awesome!

I would recommend doing it online or call. If you show up and they are booked then you wasted a long drive. It fills up fast because it is such a short tour and the venue is very small. Check Groupon for deals. It comes and... More

They have sold out of 2015 supply two weeks ago. We tried the local bottle shop where there was supposed to some but to no avail. We tried a nip in the cafe but they were in short supply too.
