Thistle Finch Distillery Reviews & Ratings
The tasting was great. It's definitely worth trying them all. Justin the bartender was very knowledgeable and personable. Cocktails were awesome. The pickle martini was very delicious.
Just took the tour and had a tasting. I highly recommended to all whiskey lovers! The straight rye is the best!
Had a Groupon for a taste testing tour and went with my brother-in-law. Tour guide was great and the building has so much history. Tour lasted about an hour and we tried about 8-10 different alcohols. Only reason for 4 stars was that I'm not a huge rye alcohol guy, so I didn't love the drinks. We didn't go over to the bar, but it looked like a cool, laid back environment . If you like rye alcohol, definitely a place you should check out.
What a really great place! We went out one late Friday night and the distillery was split I to a liquor side and a beer side. The beer side offered local brews. The distillery side had some of their amazing drinks. The environment was awesome and if your visiting Lancaster or just a local, you should definitely stop down.
A wonderful experience. We walked to the distillery from the downtown Marriott hotel. Since it was first visit, we started with a flight of their four Rye varieties. We learned about each from the helpful bartender. Then we tried a number of their creative cocktails, each made with a different spirit made at the distillery. We ended up buying two bottles of their spirits for home - by not the varieties that we would "guessed" we would have liked. The moral: enter open minded and try things you normally don't drink. We did not take the tour or try the beers made there due to time constraints. The location is an old tobacco warehouse a little "off the beaten path." We will return.
