Attention valued customers and friends. Considering guidance provided by Pernod Ricard USA, which has recommended closing all U.S. tasting room and visitor’s centers for distilled spirits and wine, we have determined our best course of action here in West Virginia is to also close the Smooth Ambler Tasting Room and Gift Shop as of 5 PM today, Thursday, March 12th. Due to this unforeseen closure, the sale of the Limited Edition Old Scout Rye and Old Scout Single Barrel planned for tomorrow, Friday, March 13th, will be suspended and rescheduled AFTER we reopen to the public. No sales will be conducted during our hiatus.

As you all know, the abundance of caution resulting from the spread of Covid-19 has thrust corporations, small businesses, and civilians into an uncertain and rapidly-changing environment.

Our expectation is that Smooth Ambler will remain closed to the public until the end of March, but that timeline could be extended, or abbreviated, depending on the status of the threat posed by the coronavirus.

We are working fervently to determine how this closure will affect lots of facets of our business, including scheduled barrel picks. We do NOT have those details today, and likely won’t tomorrow, so please sit tight while we work through the options and best practices. We will make announcements as solutions emerge, and there is no need to contact the distillery, or our employees, for an update at this early juncture.

Thanks, in advance, for your patience and understanding.
