Tasting Room Update, October 30, 2023
Our tasting room is open for weekend visits on both Saturday and Sunday and by special appointment during the week. You can also pick up orders from our online store every day of the week by appointment. All visitors must be 21 years of age or older. Please note that no pets are permitted in the building.

Tasting Room Fee
Due to insurance requirements, we are now obligated to charge a fee for our full tasting experience. The fee is $30 per person and includes all sales taxes. After confirming your reservation time and date, please pay the tasting fee in advance through our online store. At the store, increase the quantity to match the number of guests in your group.

If you are only making an appointment to pick up or purchase bottles, you do not need to pay the tasting room fee.

All tasting room visitors will need to make a reservation in advance.
We generally have three time slots available per day, at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm although this can vary according to our production schedule. Please note that we generally fill the later time slots once the earlier times are filled. The distillery is a one man operation and we need to maximize our weekend relaxation time. Thanks for understanding.

We may also have limited availability during the week. Please text 504-534-8590 to inquire about weekday reservations. Weekday appointment times will vary according to our production schedule.

Please email your reservation request and we will confirm by email or text. Be sure to include your cell number in the email. You can also call or text 504-534-8590 (leave a voice message if you call, all calls to this number go to voicemail!) to request your time slot.

Please note that we are unable to call you back if you call us from an international phone number. So if you don’t have a USA phone number, please email us.

Please make your reservation at least one day in advance. While we are sometime able to accommodate same day requests, this is not guaranteed. There will be a maximum of six people per reservation time slot and all reservations will be confirmed.

NOTE! If you use Gmail, be sure to check your spam folder. For some reason Gmail is defective and buggy and often marks legitimate email as spam or blocks email from our domain entirely. If you use Gmail and don’t include your phone number we probably won’t be successful in contacting you by email. So be sure to include your phone number!
