Packed house made service a bit slow but the drinks were great and the service was absolutely courteous and prompt once they made it around. Clean place with plenty of seating. Looking forward to going back!

Absolutely awesome place! Highly recommend for great spirits and delicious cocktails! Staff is extremely knowledgeable and special shout out to Trevor who was our bartender and made the experience absolutely amazing with his deep knowledge about the distillery itself as well as all their products! He crafted some amazing cocktails for our party and our entire party hands down decided that it was the best place for spirits! They make their own gin, whiskey, borboun and vodka! You won't regret it! Great place!

Bartender Tasha earns 5 stars! The drinks, the conversation, the music! Thank you for making our day

Tastes like battery acid. Old man who possibly is the owner was yelling at staff and had a gross smell emanating from him Absolutely disgusting!

I love gin and Silverback has some of the best. It easily competes with any on the market. If you are not a gin person, try the whisky sour. It is superb.

Craft distillery. Good selection of cocktails. Friendly and helpful staff. Limited food menu, but goes well with drinks.

ALEXiS just made my fiends birthday! We rolled up about 15 minutes before closing expecting to be turned away- but just the opposite happened. We were welcomed in and had amazing bloody Mary's and shots of gold. This place is awesome. We got a few bottles to go but we will be back for sure because of the amazing customer service!!! Can't wait to return!!!!

Wow! What a great experience my family and I had. Alexis was absolutely amazing. It’s not kid friendly, but she helped us make it molten comfortable. Drinks were delicious and she told us all about the menu/history. Thanks for a great out of town service!


Staff were so welcoming and friendly. They were definitely right about their gin... it's pretty amazing, and I hate gin. As they said, it has more of a citrus taste than juniper. I'm a fan of rye whiskey, so I was a bit disappointed to see that their rye was overpowered by honey. Good flavor, but way too sweet. We had a really nice visit. I suggest stopping by here for sure, but if you're looking for a REALLY good whiskey neat, Copper Fox, hands down! One in Williamsburg and the other in Sperryville.

Man O'man is this place great. Someone brought it to a family event so I had to go and get some more. The rye whiskey with honey might be the best liquor I've ever had.

What's your favorite high content alcohol? Vodka? Whiskey? Bourbon? Gin? They have it. All of it. And it's good. We met the Mother-Daughter distilling team! This is a working distillery after all and got a taste from the still and - BAM! Lacey was our mixologist and she was great. It was hot so I went with the Vodka Mule. Stop by and check this place out in your tour of the 151!

Stumbled upon this place while brewery hopping in the area. Great setup with super friendly staff! Super tasty cocktails made with their in house spirits. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area!

Really nice for a newer distillery. The 4-grain bourbon is aged 2 years but has good flavor considering it's so young... nice color to. Their honey rye is quite nice, the rye comes thru on the end of it with a real honey sweetness at first. The gin is very citrus forward - not too heavy & mild on the juniper flavor.
