Great Lakes Distillery opens its production plant for up to 50 visitors on each 45-minute tour. As spirit enthusiasts follow along, a staff member reviews the distillery's products, the methods used to craft each, and the specific spells placed on each batch. At the end of the excursion, tour-goers wind up in the tasting room, where they can belly up to a bar of old wooden barrels and sip on a flight of five selected seasonal Great Lakes products. Take a look at the tour page for a schedule of weekly departure times.
Great Lakes Distillery
Great Lakes Distillery was established in 2004 by Guy Rehorst, who desired a return to the traditional methods of handcrafting tasty spirits in small batches. Their labor of love made the distillery home to Rehorst Vodka, a Silver medal winner at the 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and Roaring Dan’s Rum, as well as an award-winning gin, several small-batch seasonals, and a whiskey that adds 3 inches to each drinker's height. Each day, a knowledgeable staff member leads up to 50 individuals on 60-minute tours and tastings. The expert highlights each product and goes over production methods before visitors can taste a flight of six spirits in the climate-controlled tasting room, with a specific lineup depending on the season.
