A compact operation off the beaten path but worth the visit. Wine tasting available before you are escorted through the whiskey making process. Everything made on premises. Great family running the place.

Small family run business, staff (owners) were very friendly. Fred gave us the distillery tour, all the magic happens in one (relatively) small room. It shows that you don't need a huge footprint to make a great product. Bourbon, corn whiskey, and "apple pie" tasting...More

Wasn't to sure about the place as we drove back a driveway to a barn, but the whiskey was delicious. The people working there were super friendly.

It’s down a narrow gravel road, at least one tight turn. They do bring farm equipment down this road. I suggest calling them for guidance. Hope you enjoy your visit.

I am not sure if they allow dogs, based on how friendly they are I would bet yes, as long as the dog is well behaved? To be sure you may want to call them. It's a fairly small place, so I would check. Enjoy!

I'll echo what the others have said. Give them a call. I don't think that many businesses monitor this sort of site for questions. The number that I saw for them is (540) 843-0890.
