Small but very interesting distillery, not the largest but picturesque. The people are enormously involved with regard to a clear and friendly explanation regarding the preparation of Whiskey. I would like to come back again.

Don't know if the folks at the distillery will let you ask for her by name but you could hide out at the bar until she is available.

Interesting tour, there is quite a bit of just standing still however. Cameras are not allowed. Best part was at the end when Sam actually taught us how to drink whiskey. I would highly recommend this tour.

I was there in August. The website said it only closes for Christmas and New Year's Day. It should be open on January 4th. You can email them to be sure. Go to their website for the email address. Good luck!

Based on the last 2 years its been open on the 29th of December, so I would be pretty confident it would be the same this year.
