James E. Pepper Distillery reviews
This was an exceptional tour! Only one hour and full of the history, explanation of the processes, a finger-dip into the fermenting cauldron, and lots of tasting. Our guide Rachel was exceptional. The small tour group allowed questions and always an answer. Good tip: go next door to Goodfellows Pizza for more distillery history and great pizza.
We didn't tour, but did a sampling. It was fun and the building and grounds are awesome. Just passing thru quick, but would like to explore more in the future.
