We attended a tour/tasting with Tyler. He knows his spirits. NV Distillery has some great products and their facility is very nice. The "bar" upstairs is pretty cool. I liked learning about the distilling process. If you're visiting the valley, make sure you stop by or book a tour in advance. You'll be glad you did.

We felt welcomed and at home immediately with our guide who taught us so much about spirits and how best to get the most flavor from each taste and notice the difference between drinks that use natural vs artificial flavors. The tour was awesome too. I wanted to leave with a bottle of everything we tried, and we’ll definitely be back.

We have been recommending this to all our friends. Hand you for kicking off our Napa weekend to a very great start

As a club member I love bringing friends and family here! Located on an obscure dead-end street, visitors are always astounded by the decor once they step inside, like a speakeasy. Staff is always welcoming and on this occasion I gifted a membership to my daughter-in-law whose birthday request was to visit NVD while in town. Can’t say enough great things about this place!

Paul and Co. are incredibly knowledgeable about their product, and the distillery industry as a whole. I learn new things every time I attend one of Paul's tastings.

I have done three tastings and love to bring new guests. Had Paul the first visit and was sold. 10 out of 10. Had another gregarious host the second visit and it was a 7 out of ten. This third visit was a 2 out 10. Nice young man but not the right passion. He had the script down but no sense of passion for his work or the people he was serving. I know now to call ahead to know the host before book

Had it not been for the customer service I would have lowered the stars to 3. But because of the customer service I raised it up. The tasting of most of the liquors they had were lacking a truly good quality taste. I found myself only really liking 2 of the liquors I was served. I wish they let people make selections on the types of liquor they want to sample.
