Thanks to recent publicity, our little farm has been flooded with visitors, especially on Saturdays. Sure, we like a party as much as the next guy. But more than 28 visitors inside our working distillery just ain’t safe. To that end, we have decided to limit the size of the groups we can accommodate and to make reservations a requirement on Saturdays. Hope you understand.
Sit and Sip Tour
Days: Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
Times: 10:00, High Noon, 2:00 or 4:00
Cost: $10.00 (Saturdays $20.00)
The “Sit and Sip” Tour is a guided walk of the ranch-distillery with detailed information about bourbon whiskey and the history of Garrison Brothers.
Our cooks and distillers will explain the process from “corn to cork.” You’ll smell the sweet corn cooking, taste sweet mash, and observe the fermenting distiller’s beer. You’ll tour the legendary stillhouse and sample high proof “white dog” right from the stills. Finally, we’ll walk you through our barrel barn for a small sample of our limited release. This tour takes about an hour.
Tours are $10 per person, $20 on Saturdays, and free if you show up on a horse. Tastings are free for humans and horses.
