I cannot express enough how fantastic this place is! A large group of us spent an afternoon at Barrel House 6, and Kara (the owner) not only warmly welcomed us, but took the time to make suggestions on what to order as first-time whiskey tasters/drinkers and according to our individual preferences. LOVE this place and will absolutely be back when visiting NY again. Tell your friends and family!!

Second time we visited the Barrelhouse and again not disappointed. Very friendly atmosphere, love sitting on the porch and watching the scenery. Next time we come through will stop again.

Nice place, nice people, great view, good drinks. Now I don’t want to be too harsh if they were having a bad day, but if they can’t sling drinks faster than this (20-30 min), I don’t know how they will survive.

My wife,daughter and son-in-law arrived at Barrel House as Kara was putting out the "open" flag. We were greeted by our bartender and she explained some of the various spirits. We met Joe and Kara, the owners. Very nice and sociable people. They gave us a history of their journey to establish Barrel House. A great facility with fantastic spirits (Kara is also the Head Distiller). This was our first visit and it definitely has been added to the top of our list for return visits.

Great view of the lake from a very nice deck. However for a distillery their offerings of whiskey (a bourbon and a rye) are too limited. Bees knees cocktail was way too small and prices too high - $43 for a flight (bourbon, rye, moonshine and gin), bees knees cocktail and chicken poppers. Probably not returning.

The owner has put her heart in creating a fantastic experience. Flavors, drinks, ambiance, she has nailed everything I want in a distillery. Great spot.

Fun place for a relaxing time. The drinks are fantastic and the atmosphere is fun and welcoming. Love hanging out on the porch looking at the lake with friends. The crèmes are a favorite so I took a bunch home. Have gone back every-time I have been in the area. Love it!!!!

Everything I’ve tried from Barrelhouse 6 has been excellent. The views from the porch are incredible and we enjoyed petting the ‘shop dog.’ The owners were welcoming and went out of their way to explain the background of each spirit we tried. If you’re out exploring the finger lakes, make a point of stopping by.

So when you had your fill of wine tasting go to Barrelhouse 6. They have a very good selection of their own distilled spirits. Go and try the Bourbon and be bold and try the Cream versions. They have a nice selection of mixed drinks. They also support local wineries with a nice selection of wines. They have snacks to go with your drinks. You need to make this a stop on your travels.

In the area? Go here. Very cool space, great staff, the bourbon cream is top notch.We had a flight;, moonshine, bourbon, rye, chocolate bourbon cream. See above for the bourbon cream, we bought a bottle. We liked the moonshine but haven’t tried a lot other of others for comparison. Bourbon and rye are great for New York and have some serious potential with age. We didn’t have any cocktails this visit but they look good and will be trying them next time.

Shoutout to Maureen!!! Best bartender out there! Our group of 13 was taken in so kindly. We all ordered a variety of drinks and not a single one disappointed. Excellent beverages and service here, can’t recommend it enough. The views were great, too! This place is a hidden gem.

We just found this awesome new distillery!!! This was their second day they were open and WOW!!! Very cool place and brand spanking new. Very cool atmosphere with belt driven fans and unique artwork on their labels. We enjoyed our visit there on a whim and what a great find. We will be back! The bartenders and owners were very friendly and gave us the history in how they came to start the business. Great drinks and a nice variety of options! Marcie was our bartender and she mixed up some great drinks! Tried their watermelon margarita among other things. And they are dog friendly and have a great deck with a views of Keuka Lake. Have foods trucks every weekend and music 🎶 what more can you ask for! And it's only a short distance from Bully Hill and Heron Hill!!
