While we are first and foremost whiskey makers, we also believe that an educated customer will better appreciate what makes our whiskey different—and we enjoy sharing the wider world of whiskey, which is historical, agricultural, political, and gastronomical.

We offer a number of classes, off-site tastings, and private tours that can be custom-tailored to birthdays, corporate retreats, and bachelor and bachelorette outings.  The distillery occupies the Paymaster Building, a turn-of-the-century former bank, as well as the Gatehouses, a pair of 1896 castle-like structures that were once the formal entrance to the Navy Yard. The Paymaster upstairs can hold as many as 75 guests for standing cocktail parties. The Gatehouses, adjacent to the distillery, can hold 80 outside, and 50 inside and are suited to various smaller event configurations.

We can provide a dedicated whiskey specialist to host tastings offsite for whiskey classes, formal guided tastings, or a casual tasting station at a larger event.  Our bottles can also be purchased for use in guest gift bags. Commercial photography rates are available on request.
