We’re proud to offer you immersive, hands-on, tours of Smooth Ambler Distillery. We’ll share with you all aspects of our painstaking process and commitment to high quality local distillation. We will guide you through our bustling production area, fermentation and bottling room. In an intimate group setting, a tasting will conclude inside one of our ten barrel aging houses (weather dependent) where we will talk about our aging process and profiles, and sample some of our award-winning spirits.

Public tour purchase includes an SAS keepsake item and 10% off Gift Shop merchandise (alcohol not included).
