Vad du kommer att göra

We'll start off with an introduction about our distillery history and North Carolina's long history of moonshining. We'll talk about distillation in general (what defines a spirit, etc.), then lead you through our state-of-the-art distillation equipment and the distillation process. Then we'll head back into the tasting room for a tasting of our moonshine and the rest of our spirits, as well as our organic bitters. NC law restricts us to six 1/4 ounce samples of a spirit we distill; unfortunately we cannot make cocktails at our distillery...so you'll head over to The Top of The Hill Restaurant & Brewery, Chapel Hill's most iconic bar, for a moonshine cocktail (or you can choose another spirit, or some of our award winning beer) and split an appetizer. You can also purchase our spirits, bitters, and some mixers at our distillery, and we'll give you some cocktail recipes.
Other things to note
You don't have to drink all the spirit samples, so at the most you'll have a total of 1.5 ounces of liquor, which is the equivalent of one cocktail at a bar. But to be safe, you may want to use Uber!

Scott and I are founders of TOPO Organic Distillery, NC's only USDA Certified Organic distillery! Founded in 2012, we are a grain-to-glass distillery; we distill our award winning moonshine, vodka, gin, and whiskeys from organic NC soft red winter wheat from farms less than 100 miles from us. Our spiced rum is distilled from organic evaporated cane juice and molasses from Florida (there's none in NC.) We were named one of "The South's Best Distilleries" by Southern Living, and our vodka is the only Good Foods Award winner in NC; just one of the many medals and awards we've received.

Var ni kommer att vara

We'll do the tasting at the distillery. Our tasting room is conditioned, but our distillery work space is not. Be sure to wear a coat in the winter! We do have restrooms, and our space is wheelchair accessible. The Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery is fully conditioned, and has an outdoor patio on the top floor of the building overlooking Franklin Street, Chapel Hill's main drag. There is an elevator to access the restaurant.

I would highly recommend the distillery tour with Esteban! My wife and I were lucky enough to to go on a weeknight, and we were the only ones there. It made for a great private experience. Esteban treated us like new friends, and we had a great time learning more about the operations there, sampling the spirits, and testing against other well-known brands. I have been on several craft brewery tours, and this was the best tour experience that I have ever had!

I've been on several brewery tours in various places around the world, not one of which came even close to the wonderful experience Esteban gave us. We were lucky to be a group of only 4 in total, which made the interaction much more intimate and special. This is easily one of the most worthwhile ways to spend an evening in Chapel Hill.

What a unique experience! I have never toured a distillery before, and had very little knowledge of the process, and the end result. During my tour, I was able to learn quite a bit, and not in an abstract way- seeing the different stills and storage tanks definitely imparts a real knowledge that cannot be picked up in books. Our guide was easily able to answer our questions and guide us through the distillation process. Tasting the end results of the various distillations was amazing- they even had gin that I liked, and I never like gin. Afterwards, we took the short ten minute walk to Top Of the Hill, and got to enjoy a quiet cocktail at the bar. I highly recommend this tour, whether you are a visitor or a local like me. Thank you!

Esteban and the team at Topo provided a top-notch tour. The tour was a birthday gift and they made it truly memorable. They were knowledgeable and very interested in discussing details of their process. Big brand labels don’t hold a candle to the quality of spirits being distilled by the crew at Topo. I highly recommend checking out the distillery and then topping it off with dinner at their brewpub down the street.

Well worth your money! Not only are you introduced to potentially the BEST spirits around, you also gain a lot of knowledge! Esteban definitely knew what he was talking about and catered to all of our tastebuds! We were telling everyone about it when we got home! 5/5 stars easily!
