Visiting a tasting room is a great way to spend time at your local distillery. It also provides an excellent opportunity to try out a few drinks before you commit to buying a full bottle. If you’re new to the tasting room experience, there are a few qualities to look for to ensure you have the best time possible.
A Guide to Tasting Rooms
Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff
Read reviews about the tasting room if possible. A friendly team that knows the entire wine, spirit, or suds menu is key to fully enjoying your experience, as they can describe each option in detail and answer any questions you may have. The best teams can also suggest food pairings with each sample you try and give you personal attention regardless of how many people are in attendance.
A warm and welcoming atmosphere is essential to a great tasting room experience. The right lighting helps create a soothing, relaxing environment, as do colorful walls and interesting pieces of decor that show off the distillery, brewery, or winery owners’ personal taste. The best tasting rooms exude a distinct charm that encourages customers to let loose with their companions as they sip craft liquor or other alcoholic beverages.
