“We were really excited to show off the distillery in this new media campaign,” said distillery owner and whiskey entrepreneur Amir Peay. “There are some interesting similarities in our businesses and to have the chance to give folks from across the country a chance to see our operation was a great opportunity.”
As the tourism season gets in full swing, the distillery will be open for tours, Old Fashioned Cocktails and welcoming guests from Wednesday thru Sunday each week this summer.
