The entire experience was so enjoyable. I bought the tour as a Christmas gift for my father and I to do together and I was NOT disappointed! He loved it. The tour was so great. Very cool learning experience as well as some comic relief. The tasting was fantastic. He really explained all of the flavors of the whiskeys and it was nice to see how passionate these guys were about what they do. The whiskey, bourbon and vodka we tasted was the best I’ve ever tasted. I would reccomend this to anyone and in fact have. Definitely a place I will return to!
Great people, great spirits and the dogs are hilarious.
I brought my 84 yr old dad,my husband and my son between all these generations we all were very interested in what the guides talked about and then the tasting went very well. These owners have great pride and they deserve a big pat on the back for such great tasting spirits. I wish everyone great success.
Speaking with the distillers who are very passionate about their work was a lot of fun. I would have liked to hear a little more about the distilling process - like a more defined step-by-step procedure of how the whiskey & bourbon come to production. We will definitely tell people good things about you!
Scott and Matt are always passionate about their process and business and sharing that during the tour.
The tour guides were very knowledgeable and enjoyable, they took the time to answer everyone's questions. The information provided with the tastings was educational and entertaining.
Scott was a great tour guide and filled with a wealth of information. Matt made the sampling interesting and fun. The Bourbon and the Rye are two outstanding whiskeys. We came away with a bottle of each. Looking forward to their next release coming soon we hope. I guess we will be making another run to Yankee Distillers.
We had a great time learning about your product and how it's made. Looking firward ti a return visit just to have a well made cocktail or two.
Great tour. Fabulous! Can't say enough good things about the tour. Scott had great stories and Matt provided wonderful insights into the world of distilling.
The tour by Scott was very informative, entertaining and complete. The guided tasting by Matt was also very informative, entertaining and complete. The generous tastes allowed us to compare and contrast the spirits.
The tour was interesting. Definitely enjoyed the tasting and the Matt's insights into the whiskey and vodka. Enjoyed the Old Fashion at the bar and brought home some Yankee Rye whiskey. We'll definitely be going back.
The tour was extremely informative and you can tell the owners are passionate about their product.
Great people. Great tour. I know all I need to know but plan to take the tour again. Also, plan to just visit for a drink or two every so often.
Amazing tour! Hidden gem in the area and a must do event if you want to learn more about distilling.
Jim and I really enjoyed the talk and tour. It's obvious the owners are passionate about their facility, process and product. We are not, however, frequent users of distilled spirits, and hardly qualified to compare and rate them. We are wine and beer drinkers, and find most spirits too strong. Our reaction to your products was similar, as expected. Thank you again for a fun evening. Kathleen
The tour was very entertaining with lots of funny stories plus details about the distilling process. The products that were included in the tasting were excellent.
The staff was not only extremely welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating, but also hilarious! We lucked out that the tours before and after ours cancelled, so we had a very relaxed visit and the opportunity to ask many questions. The product is some of the best I have ever had, the visit was certainly worth it.
Fantastic presentation!! I love both the rye and bourbon... Vodka is great too!!!
I love the tour guides! Both gentlemen made it fun and engaging. Also I loved that it was grounded and real with the information and jokes. I could tell that both guys were really passionate about what they did. I’d absolutely come again!
We had An amazing time! My husband is a huge whiskey lover and said it is the best whiskey he has ever had. We will definitely be highly recommending and returning. The atmosphere was so chill and everyone was so nice and fun.
The tour was excellent. Very informative and presented with good humor. It is obvious you have a passion for creating great products. Before the tour I had the best Old Fashion ever. Great place for a before or after dinner drink too.
Had an awesome time hanging out with the guys at Yankee. Scott leads a funny, informative tour while you get the chance to sip one of Matt's great cocktails (I suggest the Old Fashion). Will be stopping by again soon.
Fun and tasty!!
We had a great time. Very impressed with the tasting. Excellent products. Tour could have bren a little livelier!!
Excellent experience, great products and great people running.
We all had a great time!
The owners were very passionate about the products they make and extremely detailed when describing everything in the tour. The vodka, rye, and bourbon all tasted great.
The product you produce is of high quality, and both the bartender and distiller are very knowledgeable I would possibly just shorten the lecture part of the tour a little bit (maybe 30-45 max) or sell more drinks to the patrons during the tour. The info about the rum recipe coming from Albany during the vat discovery is SUPER COOL ! Your bar area is very nice as well-- I will be purchasing your products this fall. Best of luck in the future and keep up the awesome work !
The staff there was very knowledgeable and answered any questions anyone had.
Great bartender and knowledgeable staff.
Great tour. Very friendly and great product
Incredibly friendly and informative. Great people and great times!
Everyone there was a lot of fun. The adorable and friendly pugs we're just icing on the cake. The distillers really know what they are doing and you can definitely taste it in the liquor and their house made cocktails. I've told all of my friends and co workers to give them a try!
Great experience, Scott (our tour guide) was knowledgeable and entertaining. Beautiful tour with amazing whiskey.
