  • We loved everything about the experience we had at Fort Nelson! The first thing I want to point out is the warm welcome we received from the staff was absolutely amazing. Specifically - Nick, Annie Mae, Christy, Dallas and Aron!! They were always making sure the experience was top notch. The passion they all have for the experience translated to pure excellence and prestige!! Well done Michter's for not only having an amazing product & tour experience but for employing such remarkable staff. Our group loved everything about our time we spent there. Highly recommend it! We will definitely be back!
  • What an experience. We had to wait a bit to go up the elevator. Once we arrived upstairs our seats were ready with water and a snack tray with pretzels, banana chips and corn nuts. They have a well crafted selection of cocktails and multiple flight options to choose from. Everything is on point. Everyone behind the bar gave attention to our needs. Top notch.
  • Had a fantastic experience at Michter's. Right when you walk in, everything is clean, new, and modern. The staff was so friendly. Since it wasn't very busy in the gift area, we were able to talk to the staff about the different Michter's whiskeys. I appreciated how knowledge the woman was that I was sitting with and that she also enjoyed their rye as much as I did. We had the opportunity to go upstairs to the bar area and get a flight to try 4 of their bourbon whiskeys. It was a fun experience because the bar was beautiful, the bartenders were really great and personable, and it's almost impossible to be able to find their products. The ability to be able to finally try some of their higher end offerings was really a treat and I will definitely be coming back. We were even fortunate enough to be there when a few of their impossible to find bottles came out. It was so nice to finally be able to buy their whiskey at a normal, fair price. I now have bottles to enjoy with friends for some special occasions!
  • Fabulous atmosphere, delicious drinks, great service. What I like about Michter’s is that there are options for everyone. While this place feels like a very solid bourbon watering hole, as a layman I really appreciate the non alcoholic and non bourbon options. I recommend having reservations well in advance. You can walk in and sit at the bar anytime.
  • Amazing experience and distillery! Hands down best staff & team! Vicky is so wonderful and helpful. Makes you feel welcomed immediately and has a passion for the business. Chelsea was great at walking us through the Fort Nelson fill your own bottle! The rest of the staff up front and throughout were so nice and there to answer any and all questions or show you around. Can’t wait to go back!
