“Craft Beer & Small Batch Lovers Flock!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Hipsters and just cool people who appreciate craft beers or small batch rums and liquor rejoice on your weekend getaway. This is your kinda place. We samples several things and bought a few things to take home -- which were gone instantly. Glad we stopped in during our last visit!

“Out of the way...but worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

The distillery is a bit out of the way and signage is lacking. The distillery is behind the winery in a separate building. It is easy to miss...which is unfortunate because the area is really neat. There is not much to see when you go in (unless you show up during the weekend, in which case they have tours)...but the rum (both the white and dark) is really good!

This is fun and informative. Our first visit was in March, and recently returned last week (7/22). They are growing and have so much to offer. Very fun and informative. A must see.

“Great place and Great Rum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

As a rum enthusiast I was excited to discover that St. Michaels had a distillery, and was excited to stop by during their open hours on Saturday afternoons. We took advantage of the rum tasting (their whisky is not quite ready yet) and LOVED it. The white (cocktail) rum is great, but their dark rum is one of the best I've ever enjoyed (seriously good.) Well worth a stop (and a purchase!) if you are visiting the area!!

“Great rum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

We recently took a day trip to St.Michael's and enjoyed sampling the rum from Lyon distillery. We were welcomed in and offered samples right away, the clear rum and the dark rum. I really enjoyed the dark rum. Very friendly staff, we chatted for awhile and he made some recommendations of some other things to do in town. I think it will always be a stop on future visits to St.Michaels!
