We’ll Be Back

The whiskeys they make were excellent. We ordered several things on the food menu and everything was delicious. These people obviously care about what they’re putting out.”

Joe B. review of Fernweh


Welcoming and [they] do a great job of explaining their rye whiskey. They have a tour and tasting and you make your own Old Fashioned. Definitely recommend stopping by!”
