Interested in learning about the art and science behind your favorite products?
During a tour of Durham Distillery, you will learn about our gins, vodka and liqueurs, enjoy a tasting flight and get to take home a Durham Distillery branded shot glass as a souvenir.
We have two types of tours available:
- Behind-the-Scene tours are offered Thursday, Friday and Saturday. These tours are $15 per person. These tours take you into the back of the distillery, show you the still up close and include an in-depth discussion on how we make our gins, vodka and liqueurs. Post tour, you'll have a tasting of our six products with a souvenir shot glass (yours to take home!). This tour is approximately an hour.
For those of you who'd prefer to drop in, we have Quick Tours where you see the facility and can select to taste three of our products. These quick tours are offered on Thursday/Friday evenings from 5 - 9 PM and during our open Saturday hours from 2 - 7 PM. While these tours do not include a behind-the-scenes look at the distillery, they also don't require a reservation. Simply come during the open hours! These tours are $10 and include a tasting flight of three of our products with a souvenir shot glass. Note: Your Quick Tour may be delayed (<30min) if you stop in during a sold out behind-the-scenes tour. Our bar can only comfortably accommodate a certain number of guests. Other times may include a short wait to ensure every guest has a great experience.
While the distillery and tours are open to all ages, tastings are available only for those 21 years of age and older.
