New: Tour & Tastings at the Distillery

Schedule a tour and tasting for your group at Prescott’s local, award winning distillery.

On the Tour you will see how whiskey, gin and vodka is made, from the grain to the bottle.

You and your friends will be able to:

  • Taste liquor right out of the still
  • Sip barrel strength whiskey
  • Learn where the color, aroma and taste comes from in Bourbon, Rye, Rum and Single Malt.

During the tour your group will be able to sample a flight of clear liquor and a flight of Amber liquor. When your tour is over you will have some new buzzwords and a better idea of what should be in your favorite cocktail.

After the tour your can step up to the bar in the tasting room and enjoy your favorite cocktail made by one of our friendly mixologists.

Tours last approximately 45 minutes and there is a 15 person maximum per tour.

The Thumb Butte Distillery’s open mic, hosted by the Ping Brothers is a rousing success and growing in reputation wide and far. 

Join us every and any Sunday afternoon, sign ups start about 1:30, and the Ping Brothers kick off the afternoon at 2 and close the mic by 5 pm.

This is putting all you closet pickers, singers and ivory ticklers (yes we have a piano) on notice to show up and strut your stuff, knowing you have the support of your friends and neighbors.  You can be your own solo act or be backed up by your favorite musicians.
