  • Excellent staff, yummy spirits, great gift idea! We stopped in with kids in tow and they entertained themselves nearby while we sampled spirits. Some of the best spirits we tried on island.

  • Loved this place. Bought a bunch of gin and vodka to take home. People were friendly, chatty and gave us a lot of information about the distillery that endeared us so much to make several purchases. Apparently, all the ingredients are entirely local. And they have these sophisticated distilling devices custom made in Germany. And, I think the building (historically) used to be a blacksmith.
  • Terrific local distillery and even more amazing history behind the location which used to be a local blacksmith location. The tour was awesome and the tasting was just as good. I had no idea the ship used in Pirates of the Caribbean was originally built here.
