We did the barrel tasting at the barn. The bourbon was so good that we left with a barrel strength bottle pulled straight from one of the barrels we sampled. The owner was a hoot!

This is a relatively new distillery on a farm. Staff was very helpful, and offer a tasting for a small fee. The spirits are good, but not as good as some others. The prices, I thought, were very high. It’s an interesting place to visit.

While I'm not the distiller, he seemed very flexible as long as you call ahead of time.
