What You'll Get
Walking backward while talking is useful for leading a tour, demonstrating a moonwalk, or retreating from a room full of ominously staring toddlers. See the reverse saunter put to good use with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get a distillery tour for two at Troy & Sons Distillers (an $11.90 value). Tours meet at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 7 p.m. Thursday–Saturday. The tour includes:
- A 60-minute tour of the distillery for two people<p>
- Six complimentary, quarter-ounce samples of white whiskey for each visitor older than 21<p>
- Two engraved alder-wood bottle tags (a $5.95 value each)<p>
Troy Ball handcrafts each batch of her potent elixirs with genetically unmodified bushels of heirloom white corn and pure water from the Blue Ridge Mountains, earning her white whiskey a silver medal from the 2011 New York International Spirits Competition for its signature smoothness. During distillery tours, guides lead up to 30 guests on a sojourn through the facility’s labyrinth of gleaming copper stills. After the walkthrough, guests and Prohibition-era time-travelers aged 21 and older may choose to sample a selection of white whiskeys, which can include special, unreleased batches. Visitors also receive two engraved alder-wood bottle tags to take home, helping them to finally differentiate between whisky and turpentine hidden in whiskey bottles.
