Upon arrival at each distillery, what can you expect?
- These are pretty laid back locations. It is almost as if you are going to a happy hour. Drinking samples will commence and later a tour will follow.
- The distilleries have snacks and sometimes food trucks are present; however, neither distillery serves meals.
