What a great local resource! I love everything that Durham Distillery makes, and also that it is local and woman-co-owned. The tour was really interesting - I had no idea how many different spices went into making gin. A great destination, and be sure to take home a bottle or two (or pick up the canned G&T)!

The gins and vodkas and vodka products were amazing. The tour really shows you the quality and precision they put into everything they make.

While all the products they create here are delicious this review is for the tour and, more specifically, our incredible tour guide, Abbie. She was charismatic, knowledgeable, engaging, and entertaining. The tour was a great length, educational, and I left with a greater appreciation for the spirits and liquors they produce.

The tour is great - with several different types of tasting included that are interesting and some of which are unique. I was very interested to hear about their canned cocktails, which they said are shipping to ABC stores in the area for the summer. The gin itself is fantastic - I typically go to local distilleries just for the fun, but in this case you really are going for a high quality line of gin.

Stopped in to the Durham Distillery on a Thursday afternoon and was blown away by the experience! Kassey did an amazing job giving us background on the business and distillery and guiding us through a tasting. Then Katie gave us a quick show and tell for the rotovap (my inner chemist was pumped!), still and canning line. The products sold here are amazing and I’m looking forward to the Gin bar opening next year. I’m not even a gin person and I love both strengths of gin they sell.

The chocolate liquor is even better than you want it to be. The gin is also amazing, and I typically don't go for gin. Katie was a very knowledgeable and charismatic guide. We had a great time on our tour!

I'm not a big liquor person (mainly wine and light cocktails) but I heard they had canned cocktails so we thought we would pop in and try some out. Before I even mention the gin, the staff was absolutely welcoming, knowledgeable, and clearly loved what they do! The gin and tonic cocktail is amazing. After one sample, we bought two 4-packs to go and we will definitely be back for more! The gin is top notch and the canned cocktails are delicious.

I had a blast getting the tour at the distillery. It was a fun combination of education and experience. The decor was well thought out and I was happy to bring a bottle home at the end of the tour. Our guide Katie was very passionate and knowledgeable with no question being left unanswered. Can’t wait to come back!!

Had a great behind the scene tour experience here! The spirits are fantastic and the speakeasy bar downstairs is worth a visit!

This place has the most delicious gin! I did the gin flight and loved it. The staff is super nice and knowledgeable. The gin canned drinks are also great. 10/10!!

The aged gin is very good! I was a little unsure before I tried it but I like it even better than the navy strength.
The navy strength gin is superb. Our home bar is never without it.

We had a wonderful time at Corpse Reviver on Friday night. We tried several mixed drinks and most all of the appetizers. They were all delicious, but the slushies were the hands-down favorites. I also purchased a bottle of the bourbon-barrel-aged gin from the distillery upstairs, and it was incredibly smooth. Well done, Corpse Reviver and Durham Distiller. Thanks again!

Two great gins and three liqueurs. I really liked the chocolate liqueur and the lower proof gin for sipping. The tour was pretty standard if you been on other tours before. Interesting notes on what makes their still different from others. The tasting room is nice but you can only sample when doing the tour and no mixed drinks. You do get to keep the shot glass. Worthy stop before going next-door for dinner or just to take the tour alone.

Got an awesome drink kit for the weekend. Staycation mix is wonderful.

The Durham Distillery produces Conniption Gins which are nothing short of excellent. Their liqueurs are addictive ! Everything is locally sourced. The chocolate liqueur has flecks of dark chocolate floating in it and the coffee is made with a local cold brew; the mocha is the perfect blend of both.

I have been purchasing Conniption gin for many years and always get a bottle when visiting Durham. A recent bottle had a minor issue with the cork and the quick response and friendly communications by Erin were amazing. Great product, great service - I am a loyal consumer forever!
