We made a quick stop here to try their rum offerings.... we tried both the white rum and spiced. Both were quite good, very smooth. We took one of each home.

Have never been to a distillery before. The atmosphere here is great, not too loud but lively. Tasted a few whiskeys, had no experience to compare them to. Friendly bar staff. Would return.
