The Vodka they distil here is an award winning vodka, but the hops infused gin has overtones of juniper that makes it a lovely afternoon addition to cold tea! Tastings are free at the distillery, and if you buy it on Monday at the Smuggkers...More

Because they're great, and I know they're great. Last couple of times I've been there the place has been packed, so I just grab my traditional bottle of bourbon and I'm on my way. The good thing is that if I just buy, they will...More

This location has several different types of spirits as well as gift sets and bourbon maple syrup. These all make excellent gifts and souvenirs. The staff is happy to see free a tasting to help in the decision making.

Reasonable tasting fee and there's a cheese tasting shop next door. Two experiences with one stop. This is a retail shop that offers spirits and other items related to alcohol products.

They do not charge for tasting when it is at Smugglers Notch. I’m not sure what they do at the distillery itself.
