Top of the Hill Distillery
After earning more than 50 national awards for its beer since the 1990s, Top of the Hill Restaurant and Brewery turned its attention from microbrewing to microdistilling. At Top of the Hill Distillery, each batch begins with 100% organic soft red winter wheat from Scotland Neck, which distillers handcraft into a line of award-winning liquors. Those include one of the country's five wheat-based whiskeys, a sweet-tasting vodka, and a gin that packs subtle hints of vanilla, black pepper, and hazelnut. When they're not making libations, the Top of the Hill team lead tours through its USDA-certified organic distillery, which culminate in tastings of each spirit.

“Terrific experience. Owner Scott Maitland was both knowledgeable and entertaining, informative without being stuffy or boring. Highly recommended.”
“Ask if they have any beers on draft when you first arrive. We had a pint of the Blueridge Blueberry Wheat and it was delicious!”
“Great tour! Really impressive how much of his product is locally sourced.”
