Yes!!! Everyone needs to go here and do a tasting! For $5 you get to taste like 13 mini shots, and they are about 1/2 the size of a shot. I'm not much of a drinker but these were good. I was feeling pretty good afterwards. The employees are awesome and funny! It is an awesome experience!
Had a blast tasting their moonshine! $5 and then get a coupon to use to buy moonshine (trust me you'll want to!!) Can combine the coupons so we bought the butter pecan for $10 off. Red, the bartender, was absolutely hilarious and made the tasting so much fun. Thanks for an awesome experience!
My party and I went to do taste testing but were rudely given an attitude when asking a small simple question that was not posted on their sign. The taste testing is $5 for a very teeny tiny shot glass if you want to call it that it's smaller than what you would get from communion at a church they say that they have to by law make you pay for your sample but that's not true I looked up the laws it's only their law you know Screw the consumer over for more money on top of paying for the item that you want to buy I think they still at least apply the $5 to the alcohol you're buying that way you want to come back me personally no I don't want to come back why because of that whole reason on paying $5 to sample their product to know if I want to buy their product I think that is totally wrong I can go to a winery and Sample their wines for free after showing an ID and then I know exactly what wine I like and what wine I don't why should anybody have to pay for a sample of their own stuff and if that was a law then how come the wineries are not charging people to sample the alcohol they have alcohol is alcohol just different flavors. Overall my experience there was a -1 reasons to why I put the star that doesn't mean that other people are going to have the same experience as I did
Cannot say enough about our experience here. We did a tasting and we're very impressed with all the flavors. Our bartender was super knowledgeable and even shared recipes for each flavor. Wish I could remember her name, but she did have awesome blue hair! Out of all the tastings we did, this was our favorite. (We did tastings over several days... 🤣)
Awesome experience!! Manny did our tasting and he was so funny. We had a great time and enjoyed some spectacular moonshine. We ended up buying three jars and getting a free cooler! They had live music outside the store which added to the atmosphere. Huge selection and super friendly staff. The butterscotch is so yummy!
