Stopped by here to try something different. The staff was great to explain all the different spirits they offer. Great products! Our favorite was the Coffee Liqueur, wow what flavor. Highly recommend a visit if you are in town or anywhere near.

Ended up getting a big bottle of the maple rye - and I usually don't drink rye. We also got the maple bourbon too. Just a great little place.

Great place to having some tasting of Saxtons River Distillery's award winning products. I would highly recommend snowdrop, its a great gin, and even my spouse who is not huge into gin thinks its great. Have a stop by and try out their products.
