Found this place by accident and really enjoyed ourselves. We did a quick 30 minute tour with a small taste testing at the end. My husband signed up as a member. We will visit when we return to the area.

Great tour of a new up and coming distillery. Rachel was our guide and was very informative and knowledgeable of the products they make. I loved the wildflower gin! The free samples were generous and made it easy to decide what I liked.
