Distillery Tasting Room and Free Tours
Visiting Milwaukee? Looking for a fun and informative tour?
We are pleased to be able to open our distillery to the public for free tours. In our 45 minute tour, visitors will learn about our award winning products, how and why we make them and for a $5 fee get a flight of five products to try.
IMPORTANT: Due to the popularity of our Saturday afternoon tours and to improve our visitor experience we will now be limiting Saturday tours to 50 people per tour time on a first come first serve basis. WE DO NOT take reservations for Saturday afternoon tours.
