Smooth Ambler Spirits

Smooth AmblerPatiently crafted Appalachian spirits in Greenbrier County. Smooth Ambler Spirits, founded in 2009, set out to produce just that. The craft distillery says it uses a combination of high-valley mountain air, natural waters, ideal temperature variations and friendly folks to produce their truly remarkable drink.

Smooth AmblerI had heard about this place because I picked up a bottle of their gin - and love it. We arrive too early in the day for a tasting, but I did still want to check out the retail area. T-shirts, bar accessories and some chocolates were all for sale. I ended up with a coffee mug, simply because I didn't feel like lugging a bottle of liquor around with me. Plus I know it's available here locally in Morgantown.

I love that Smooth Ambler Spirits set out to be a point of pride for West Virginia. I think they've succeeded with a delicious product, beautiful branding and local pride. Get yourself some of this liquor!
