What happens during a visit to the distillery?
We offer tours and tastings. It's $5 per person (21 and over only) and includes a tour of our production facility, tastings of our product, and a souvenir shot-glass you get to keep. We recommend you allow 45 minutes to 1 hour for the tour and tasting.
are you dog friendly?
While we love dogs - not everyone does. Since we need to consider all of our customers, we ask that you leave your pet at home when you visit the distillery.
Do I have to be 21 to visit the distillery?
In order to participate in a tour and tasting, you must be 21. Those under 21 may visit our tasting room - but are not permitted on the production floor nor are they permitted to participate in tastings or sit at the bar. For children under 12, a parent or guardian must be with them in the Tasting Room at ALL times.
Can I purchase your products at the distillery?
Sure! You can purchase up to three (3) 750ML bottles of our product, per person after you have taken a tour of our facility.
Do you sell beer, wine, or offer mixed drinks?
No. We are not a bar or brewpub. We are a production facility making fine, hand-crafted spirits. We only offer tastings (four 0.5oz samples) of our products - no mixed drinks - but we are the first Maryand Distillery to feature canned cocktails. These are available to sample as part of your tasting.
Do I need an appointment to take a tour?
No! Just stop by during our regular hours, and we'll get you into a tour. However, if you are a large group (10 or more) calling in advance helps us ensure we can get everyone into a single tour.
Do you Sell merchandise in your tasting room?
Yes! We sell logo merchandise (hats, T-Shirts, coasters, shot glasses) as well as other items. We actually now feature a Soap - hand-crafted by Savage Soaps of Frederick, and based on our gin botanicals.
CAN I BRING FOOD TO THE DISTILLERY?
Kinda of....Here's the deal. We have an extremely limited space in our tasting room. If it is not crowded, you can certainly feel free to bring food and enjoy it in the space. However, if it does get crowded, we will need the tables / seats for customers conducting tastings.
How long does the tour/tasting take?
We recommend allocating an hour for the entire experience. The tour is typically 20 - 30 minutes - filled by the tasting which can be another 20 - 30 minutes.
I CANT COME DURING YOUR NORMAL HOURS. DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE TOURS/TASTINGS?
Sometimes. Here's the deal - we are typically in production during the week, and, for safety reasons, we would need to shut down most production during tour hours. Due to this, we only schedule private tours with payment in advance - and the minimum tour fee is $75 (that will cover up to 8 participants). These must be scheduled in advance. Book via our online store.
I own a bar/restuarnt/liquor store and want to bring my staff. is that possible?
Sure! We are available (with advance notice) to offer you and your staff a private tour and tasting at no cost. Contact us for details.
