Good whiskey, good tour, first-rate tasting room and campus; we'll be back.
Your distillery is awesome! Our tour guide Patrick was excellent! Very enthusiastic about what yall are doing! Can't wait to hear more from the Virginia Distillery!
Could have used a little time downstairs before the tour ......didn't have time to read the walls. Also, felt it was a little too expensive.
Well one was that we were very lucky and got effectively a private tour. The other is that I believe the tour is staged very well.
the experience was great. The facility is beautiful, everyone is friendly, and being able to see how the Whisky is made was a great experience.
A thoroughly entertaining and informative tour. A classy tasting room with great hosts. Oh - and a top notch single malt scotch!
The tour facilities and information was educational and interesting. Not having visited a whiskey distillery before, I got a great sense of the process. The docent took every question and gave clear answers. He was patient with my grandchildren, and he had a good sense of humor. It was well worth the trip and plan on doing it again. Great facilities, by the way, and the Highland Malt must always grace your counters!
The tour was very educational and interesting. Helene was a great guide and we really learned a lot!
The tour was well designed and very informative. The use of video segments, visual displays and live presentation was a nice blend. Our tour guide, Patrick, was excellent; very knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions.

Patrick was a delightful guide. I learned something new and, based on recent research, could pass along some new information to Patrick.
Awesome tour! Great whisky! Had a fantastic time!
My girlfriend and I are frequent visitors and when tours were offered, we were excited. The tour guide Patrick was excellent. He was very fun and informative. Will served our drinks afterwards and did a great job. We will be back for sure.
We were so impressed with your facility and how thorough your tour was. Our tour guide, Joan, was so knowlegeable and took her time explaining everything, telling stories along the way, and answering all of our questions. If she wasn't quite sure of her whole answer, he assistant Carol made notes to find out later. But this rarely happened as she knew so much!! She is a gem and you are so lucky to have her. The videos that were shown throughout the tour were so professionally done - the photography so impressive. We loved the whisky and the drink tastings. There were 4 in our party and one person didn't want to do any tasting, but in the end she tasted everything and enjoyed it!! Will was a great bartender, fun to talk to and you can tell he has been a bartender for some time. We bought a bottle of the whisky and some whisky glasses. Can't wait to bring some more friends back to your facility. Thank you so much for bringing this great business to this area of Virginia!!!
Excellent tour. Fantastic setting and outstanding staff.
