Distilleries and Breweries By Tims Ford Lake

We all think of Jack Daniels Distillery when the word Whiskey in the area comes up -- but did you know that there are five distilleries by Tims Ford Lake?  and a few breweries as well in the area?  

We've put together details for a Distillery Tour in the area that takes you to four different distilleries including Dickel and Nearest Green Distillery.

George Dickel Whiskey Distillery

George Dickel Whiskey Distillery

The George Dickel Whiskey Distillery is located south of Winchester by about 30 minutes.
