Located alongside the Highland Brewery (though not related), this whiskey distillery is a great place to visit when you're in Asheville, NC. Ken does a nice job conducting the tour and the product is excellent. Try the cinnamon induced whiskey - great for after dinner...More

Very happy with the tour and tastings offered here. Although the tour was brief, it was informative. Loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the food trucks.

Troy's son gave us a great tour. There was tasting of the product after the tour. North Carolina law does not allow you to buy product at the Distillery which was disappointing, but at least now we know which of the products we like.

My wife and I had heard from a friend about this place. My family has its own roots in moonshine. This place turns out mighty fine corn liquor. Best legal shine I've ever had. By far. Can't buy it at the distillery. ABC store only.
