It's a very small distillery off the beaten path. Worth visiting to see something different other than the other mainstream distilleries. The ladies giving the tours were very nice and professional. It's interesting to see how a distillery can be started. The products weren't anything...More

Beautiful facility, and a chance to see bourbon and whiskey distillation on a smaller scale from an up-and-coming facility. The visitor center is nicely designed, and the people running the center and the tours are both knowledgeable and friendly. They aren't bottling their bourbon yet,...More

We showed up at your distillery. You were closed but invited us in for a private tasting with one of the owners. It was an incredible experience, well worth the drive. We will be back. Everyone was very friendly and we felt very welcome.

This is a newer distillery, but definitely worth a stop if you enjoy bourbon. It was also fun to learn about the property and history of the owners. We will definitely visit again the next time we are in Kentucky.
