Tours & Tastings
Our Unique Experience
Hosted by a member of the Crystal Ridge team, our tours and tastings are an opportunity to learn more about the history of moonshine in Hot Springs, Arkansas and the local and regional ingredients that go into our distilling process.
Our free tour allows guests to experience the beauty of our historic, restored building. Hand-built between 1910 and 1920 with what was then state-of-the-art craftsmanship, we have revitalized the structure with modern amenities while maintaining its heritage and authenticity. From revealing the 1916 fire doors to leaving the rough-cut lumber rafters exposed, every detail exudes the original architecture.
As your Crystal Ridge guide takes you through our building, you’ll get a firsthand look at our distilling process. From our finely ground grain to “Patrick”, our 250-gallon copper and wood still, and through our bottling and labeling process, each tour is a unique experience and guests are welcome to ask questions about any part of our operation.
Tours typically last between 25 and 30 minutes and no reservation is required. Tours are offered Monday – Sunday according to the schedule below.
Tastings are offered every 30 minutes. No reservation required.
After the tour or for those who are more interested in our product than our process, we offer $10 curated tastings of a selection of our spirits. Let one of our distilling experts walk you through a sampling of the complex and smooth flavors we offer at Crystal Ridge. The menu for our tastings rotates seasonally, but always provides guests with a chance to try our newest and most popular moonshines.
Tastings are offered every 30 minutes and no reservation is required. If you’re looking for a drink to take with you on the tour, or you’re feeling thirsty after your tasting, visit our Moonshine Saloon.
