Without alcohol, grownups would have to satisfy their adult thirsts by waiting for kiddie cocktails to graduate college‬ or straining gin-free martinis through completed tax forms. Imbibe mature beverages with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a tour of Rock Town Distillery for two (a $14 value). Children receive free admission to tour the distillery, but guests must be 21 and older to taste the products.

Phil Brandon and his team provide factoid-filled tours and brew up award-winning liquors at the Rock Town Distillery. Track the complete liquor-making process from locally sourced grains to sealed bottles in a 45- to 60-minute tour as knowledgeable spirit guides explain the origins of bourbon, detail the ingredients in vodka, and embarrass gin by showing guests its high-school yearbook. A tasting takes place posttour, where thirsty lips meet with Brandon's gin, which acquired a double gold medal at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and Brandon's vodka, a lightly spicy fluid that was voted second in the world in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge's blind tasting. Tonsils tingle after Arkansas Lightning bourbon and Arkansas Lightning Whiskey, a 125-proof play on moonshine that’s as hot and spicy as a romance novel dipped in lava.

Rock Town Distillery

Profiled in the Arkansas Times and on THV, Rock Town Distillery crafts small-batch artisan spirits using Arkansas materials. Local red winter wheat transform into vodka and gin, corn and wheat become the award-winning clear Arkansas Lightning, and charred white-oak barrels grown from Arkansasian barrel trees cradle young bourbon as it ages. Each day, the distillery hosts warehouse tours, complete with the grain-to-bottle production story of each spirit and tastings of all liquors at the end. The distillery has been named one of the 10 best Southern distillery tours by USA Today and one of the top 25 craft distillery tours in the U.S. by The Daily Meal.

Customer Reviews

My husband & I had a great time. Phil Brandon, the owner, was super nice & gave a great tour of the distillery and sample of each product made there. I have been telling all of my family & friends about it, & plan on returning with a few of them for a fun time!

We really enjoyed both your tour and your samples! We bought a bottle and my husband has had everyone who's since come over try it!

We enjoyed it a lot and we will be looking for their products at local stores. We particularly liked their gin and we will be preferring it as it is a high quality product that is competitively priced.
