The owner was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Love his attitude. Great tour
Great tour and rye....
Great tour, great experience. Really interesting and we loved the products too!
The tour was given by the owner himself, which was more personal. The tastings were fun, organized and informative too.
Such a fun, relaxing evening. Very educational. Employees very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Tasting time was nice for we were able to try everything and felt no pressure to buy even though we did. Very fun evening!
Love having the tour guided by an owner who knows the whole process. Very knowledgeable and asked for questions along the way.
I had a great time and I also posted a review on your Facebook page.
I had a great time with my girlfriend. Very informative, nice looking place, and good tasting spirits.
Doc P’s is amazing! We bought a bottle of Rye and we’re excited to crack it open. The tour was very informative and the presentation was fantastic!
Very personal tour - entertaining and informative. Full tasting flight afterwards was awesome. Will recommend!
Enjoyed the tour and tasting.
It would be nice if the drinks come with snacks
Great tour, we learned a lot and enjoyed all of the spirits! I will definitely be looking for Doc Porter on the shelves the next time I visit the liquor store
Carl provided a very interesting explanation of the distillery process and aging of bourbons. The tasting was also very enjoyable with explanation again of characteristics of each product. Would be fun to have something hands on like grinding wheat or corn as this really speaks to the farm to bottle. Nothing crazy but engages people in process and differentiates you from breweries etc.
The tour was great & the tasting was really enjoyable. Just wish we had water or drinks offered to us. I believe they ran out. But overall very enjoyable!
Very warm and welcoming, concise and interesting tour, delicious spirits.
Really great place. The tour was very informative. I like how they start with local grains.
Everyone was very friendly and very knowledgeable. I felt like I learned a ton and the spirits were delicious!
The tour itself was lovely and quite informative. However, it is billed as the “owner-led” and I think that could be clarified in be literature (online) to include the master distiller (he did a wonderful job). Also, the confusion with the crowd that showed up prior to the tour starting could have been sorted with some well placed signs/audio announcements about what’s happening. It was quite a crush in the lobby room while we were all waiting.
Wonderful tour, great product and fun time!
From the guy - great visit, I'm an Mech engineer, so I got it, understood it well, cool stuff you are doing. From the wife - it was too hot in the room, had to sit down. too much details. great gin :)
This place is so great. The concept is really nice and there is so much thought and care that goes into their processes. My reason for an imperfect rating is because of the lack of air in the back room. It was so hot and not a single fan was running that I literally almost passed out. They do offer free water, but it wasn't enough to shake the dizziness. If they can get some air flowing in the back room it would be 5 stars all the way.
Great tour and very interesting, fun filled! We all really enjoyed it and will definitely support Doc Porters spirits going forward. We would recommend this tour to anyone!!
Andrew's passion for both the product and the process were obvious.
Nice story, enthusiastic owner, strong alcohol

Brilliant owner led tour and fantastic tastings. Right next to old meck beer garden makes for wonderful day.
Tour was interesting but covered a lot of technical ground in a short period of time. Slow down and and dumb it down. Cover broader aspects of the business.
Andrew is a great tour guide. He makes evertone excited about the process and the product
The tour was excellent. It was fun and informative. I highly recommend it.
Very interesting tour with knowledgeable and friendly owner. The "spirits" were pretty good as well.
