    as someone who is underage it was a cool place to watch them make it and see all the flavors. They also have several others such as delicious jellies,salsas, and sauces that were available to try

    This is a cool place to stop. It's probably best to stop here first and try the free samples before walking around or going to eat. The employees do a good job of entertaining groups.

    They have a ton of other delicious goodies for sell like salsa and dips. And be sure to take a break and enjoy the live music while you rock in a rocking chair

    best Moonshine ever....the Apple Pie is like real Apple Pie just in liquor form, really love the taste of the original, love sweetness of the corn, but white lightning is the best :)

    What a great experience! Live music, great views of the distillery, great gift shop, and a ton of samples. Just make sure to have a designated driver if you're gonna try all the moonshine samples!

    Apple Pie is smooth and tasty and can be mixed with other flavors like Blackberry for a Cobbler Cocktail! Samples are a must on every visit! :0)

    Great free moonshine samples, awesome bluegrass music in the Holler. After you try your samples sit in the rocking chairs and enjoy the free music!

    Great tasting with a hugely entertaining pourer Michael. Did a great job of explaining it and also making it entertaining. Deserves tips. Great shine and the cherries are crazy. Watch out

    Rib eye steak is great. If there is a long list before you (and you are with kids...), go down yo to the lake, and buy food for the ducks (25 cents) - it will keep them busy

    got some peach on this visit. Awesome place. The flavor shine is best, their "white lightning" taste gross though. Great live music out in front of store.

    The samples are excellent and listening to live music from a rocking chair creates an atmosphere of a time when everything in life was a little slower.

    Service with our free samples was kind of shitty, I guess because we looked younger/poorer than the others at our area? Sugarland distillery down the street is much better, in taste AND service
