We went as two couples and did the short tour with tasting. Informative tour. Knowledgeable tour guide. It's a tough duty to do mini-shots of straight bourbon. The coffee one is excellent. Well thought out gift shop.

Loved the visit to Southern Distillery. Angelique was a great guide and very informative about the history of distilling in NC. We purchased several bottles as well as a few other items from the store. Highly recommend.

This is a nice place to take a break and stretch your legs. The distillery is interesting to tour and the samples are good. The spirits are good and worth sampling and taking home.
