Very interesting building with a great educational tour. The rums weren’t my favourite but did enjoy the gin products.

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.
Although you could declare this as a shop, the staff gives you tons of information how their produce is made AND you can experience it by yourself. The classic smell of a wood burning distillery, the ambience in this 100+ year old building, the old distillery itself, the fine bottles which are displayed, the recipes you can grab and try at home.... we really enjoyed our stay and we tried some of the "good stuff". And yes: It is good! Recommended for interested persons - and you can definitely learn something about the distillery. Try the maple rum and the maple cream rum. You won't be disappointed.
