We went on a Saturday for a 6p tour and lucky for us it was a private tour because no one else showed up. The tour was great and extremely interesting. The guide was also the master distiller and you can tell he has a passion for his craft. The tour comes with a tasting and they offered a number of different whiskeys to taste. Great tour and a great tasting for sure. I highly recommend going.

We've toured large whiskey and bourbon facilities before, but this was a great tour with a more intimate feel as there were just a small number of people in it. We were able to see where the whiskey is made, learn how, packaging, etc. VERY cool to see the barrels there from Woodford Distillery, KY where we also had the opportunity to tour, but also the corn from my very own county that went in to making that whiskey. Pretty neat!

Kenn was a nice guy with a quirky sense of humor that was right up our alley. The tastings afterwards just added to the experience. The cinnamon honey and nectarine are fabulous and definitely my favorites. I was pleasantly surprised by the cinnamon honey.

I would definitely recommend!

(Finding it was a little difficult as signage was slightly blocked. If you get to the front of Highland Brewing, it's the door to the left. Tours are at 5 and 6pm Fri and Sat, but if a tour is in progress, they lock the doors as they are a small operation with a small amount of staff so leaving the front and merchandise freely unattended would not be good for their business.)

Had been wanting to visit this place for some time and we weren't disappointed. This is a must see while in the Asheville area or if you live in WNC (as we do). You will enjoy the very interesting tour and the tasting at the end. Our guide was Mr. Phillips and he was great. I can't say enough about how he made us feel right at home and was a great personality. We appreciate the chance to visit and for the great samples. We will be back very soon...

ours was led by one of the distillers who was very low-key but w/ a wickedly dry sense of humor. The tour is free (YAY!) and lasts just at an hour w/ a history of the distillery, how the distillery works followed by sampling of all of their products at the end. There are tours at 5.00 & 6.00pm on Fridays and Saturdays but the signage is not very informative as they lock the door while giving the first tour so you have no idea where to go or what to do waiting for the second. (A sign reading "next tour @ 6.00pm. Please wait here" would have been helpful) Leading to the confusion is all of the activity at the adjacent Highland Brewing Company which is not part of the distillery. .
