The Brothers Vilgalys Spirits Company
The founders of Brothers Vilgalys began making krupnikas, a traditional Lithuanian spiced-honey liqueur, on their stove-top as a treat for visiting friends and family. That all changed in 2012, when they went into business making the drink on a much grander scale. At The Brothers Vilgalys Spirits Company, they craft a version of their original home-distilled spirit using whole spices, pure grain alcohol, and North Carolina wildflower honey. Every Thursday–Saturday afternoon, they give tours of their 1,300-square-foot facility, which provide a behind-the-scenes look at production and a few complimentary tastings. They also offer their own cocktail recipes to further their customers' enjoyment.
If you use navigation to get there it's 3 blocks past were it takes you in a strip. Spirits are excellent. Very nice young Man with great plan using his Family's recipe and tradition. I wish him much success! We will deffinately become loyal customer

It's not a tour in the conventional sense as the business is so small. The reality is that you get to hear about somebody's dream for 20 minutes and sip on a very tasty elixir! Very entertaining story teller.
