Stop in James River’s friendly and relaxed atmosphere where the staff is awesome and the tours in-depth … you just might be lucky enough to have yours given by their head distiller Dwight. Tastings are offered and you just may find there isn’t a bottle they make that you wouldn’t want to take home.
