Paid online and arrived 10 minutes early. Greeting was gruff and stiff, not exactly a warm welcome. Everyone herded into the bar area. Hard to hear over bar noise. Tour guide-Dennis-was knowledgeable but not friendly. Tour was not exactly intimate with 25 people packed into small space. Final straw was Dennis snapping at people to move faster into the next area after beginning the tour. That finished me off, and my wife and I left. Not worth it. Never tasted their product-they are too full of themselves as it is. Far different experience than the distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee.

First thing is that it smells fantastic when you walk in the door! It is very clean. The small tour and the story of how it began and how it's made was great. I've been to Ireland and the distillery tours do not hold a candle to this.
Their product is also very good!!!

What a great place to visit!
Dennis who lead our tour was an amazing guide.
We were also fortunate to meet Matt( one of the owners) who spent quality time chatting with us.
We will most certainly be going back next time we are in the area.

Great tour as regards information regarding the distilling process, history of the organization and hands on viewing of the facility. However, having been on tours at a number of other distilleries, including, but not limited to Makers Mark, Evan Williams..., frankly thought the tasting was stingy. Some also provide you with a complimentary shot glass or some other memory following the tour. However, Dennis was very knowledgeable and engaging.

My husband and I have been on many distillery tours. This was a good one and our tour guide Dennis was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed it very much and would recommend both the tour and sticking around for some of their amazing cocktails!
