Had a nice tasting and bought a couple bottles of rum and whiskey. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and did not pressure us to buy. Nice place to spend 30-45 minutes.

We stumbled into Lyon walking around St. Michaels kind of by accident, and so glad we did. The spirits are fantastic, and the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. Free tastings too! :)

We had a great time! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was very interesting and I learned some good details about the distilling process. We enjoyed the samples and chose to take a few bottles home with us! We will be back!
