Good time! Tour was interesting and informative albeit a little too technical. Love the father daughter duo and they love their craft. The tasting room is unique and is decorated really cute! Tasting was fun, we all went home with multiple bottles... gin, bourbon, whiskey, rum and vodka. We'll be back.
Chris was very passionate and answered all our questions (no matter how dumb they were). It was informative and fun seeing the new all the different equipment and barrel storage. Craig and Terry were great on explaining each spirit throughout the tasting process. Highly recommend and will taking other people there soon.
This experience was very fun and informative. The owner exudes happiness as he is giving his tour-you can easily tell that he enjoys his work!
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The tasting room and shop area were well stocked, professional, and inviting. Would definitely recommend this experience to my friends.
We had a great personal tour with Chris, the owner. He spent a long time with us, telling us more than we ever could have wanted to know!! We had a lovely afternoon at Dry Diggings and went home with full brains and a few new bottles for our liquor cabinet. Thanks!
As a second timer it was great and I picked up even more information...!!! I did get a little feedback...I think Chris may have 'assumed' that everyone knew what the distilling process was all about...the 3 guys I brought weren't as 'knowledgeable' as I thought they were. We kinda jumped in the deep end and they were a bit lost in the details... Might be good to 'check' the experience level of everyone on the tour, as I said, that may have been my fault for jumping in and asking so many questions. Great tasting as well, and they were very impressed with Chris' experience and enthusiasm around his life at Dry Diggings. Best wishes and Hope for a great new year...
Our tour guide was thoroughly knowledgeable about the distillery any many of its processes. A wealth of background information and stories. The distillery is small and limited, but the guide was excellent. Quaint craft distillery. I enjoyed their Rye Whiskey more than I had thought I would. Their Vodka was good. But their brandy's left me wanting more.
We had a party of 4 and made reservations a few days in advance. The owner gave the tour. He is passionate about what he does and very knowledgeable about distilling. We had a great time!
