Came here today and popped in the tasting room with my husband to sample one of the local whiskeys. Now, I'm not a whiskey drinker but mixed with something, I can tolerate it. But then I looked at the menu and saw there was a Black Shire Blackberry Whiskey and I just had to try it. We ended up creating a mule with their blackberry wh ... read more

This was a neat place! The chairs were so comfortable and our group enjoyed the blackberry lemonade and the tea, both.

We visited Hermann recently and found the Black Shire Distillery to be attractive and appealing from the outside as part of our visit. Since we don't just drink wine, we were intrigued by this spirits alternate. Our curiosity was satisfied in a very positive way. They serve some great spirits, costing $12 for a tasting and $7 for a p ... read more

Very interesting menu choices and the BlackBerry whiskey lemonade is delicious. We went home with two bottles Blackberry whiskey. Service was great, and they were open on the patio and limited inside service during Covid. We just went about two weeks ago. Someone had complained about drink prices in one of the reviews, and I complete ... read more

Nice outdoor area, but not much drink selection.

Try the blackberry whiskey
I'm not super impressed by most of their spirits but the blackberry whiskey is well worth a stop for a sample. Try it on the rocks or mixed with lemonade, either way its delicious.

Spirit Tasting
I am not a real big expert on wine so I liked tasting other types of alcohol.. You could get 4 samples for $10. I tried a whiskey, a brandy and 2 gins. Cant say i liked the brandy but then i am not a brandy drinker nor the whiskey but again it is not my drink of choice. I do like gin and their non flavored gin was so good i had to bu ... read more

Great Patio, Good drinks and friendly people
Stopped here late in the day on the Friday during Oktoberfest. They weren’t busy so we had a great experience—nice discussion with bar tender, who gave us great recommendations on drinks and what else to do. Their blackberry whiskey was great—and I don’t like whiskey....More ... read more

Great whiskey
Excellent service and great whiskey. The patio is one of the best ones in the area. Great view of the river and close enough to pick up the live band at the winery next door.

Good whiskey
We stopped by for a tasting. I’m not a fan of the whiskey, but I did enjoy the blackberry whiskey. It would be perfect with lemonade. My husband really enjoyed this place as he is a big whiskey fan! Very nice area and atmosphere. I’d...More ... read more

What a cute relaxing place!
What an adorable place to spend an hour or two. They distill their own spirits and I must say I sampled (and bought) what I believe to be the best vodka I've ever tasted. Kay, our hostess was fantastic. She was so customer-focused and sweet....More ... read more

Merrill is by far the best bar tender you will find in Hermann. Nice and knowledgeable in the fine arts of Spirits. The gin is top notch and worth the visit.

We went there for a tasting and enjoyed the chance to try different spirits. The fact that you cannot -yet- buy any except onsite was inspiring to buy a couple of their unique BlackBerry whisky that will go great in lemonade. Yum!

Good spirits, great atmosphere!
The spirits are a bit young and harsh, but the cocktails are excellent, the atmosphere is fantastic and the bartenders are a joy! Really enjoyed this visit. Also, really love their charity. All the profit goes to maintenance of the declining breed of the black...More ... read more

Great spirits, neat place. Within walking distance of Hermannhof winery and Tin Mill Brewing Company...definitely check it out, the lady who served us our spirits tasting was knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. Go there.

Cool place
Enjoyed this place. Bartender was nice. Whiskey was average. I wished they would have shown the full process.

Nice stop along the way in Hermann
Went to this place just as a secondary stop while in Hermann. Did one of the tastings of the whisky offerings and the Raspberry Whisky was excellent flavor change. Brought it home and mixed it with lemonade...what a combo. This place looks to be a...More ... read more

Take the time to tour and sample there products. Beautiful horses. Building and grounds are amazing to see. Staff was very friendly and lots of items available for purchase in shop.

This place cannot ever disappoint. There were 10 of us, we made reservations. We had a great table outside to enjoy the weather. The staff was great with such a large crowd. My brisket grilled cheese was so good. Great service, great food! Will continue...More ... read more

A very nice, small and new distillery in a cool space. As part of the historic Hermann Farm, this is well worth the trip while in town. Would definitely return!

Wow...a hidden gem! Must visit.
What a beautiful distillery and tasting room, Black Shire will soon be a Herman favorite! Visit the main location on the farm, just out of town. It’s a nice winding road to the distillery, and you can sample whiskey, gin, vodka: the blackberry whiskey is...More ... read more

So nice a quiet and peaceful
It was such a beautiful setting, off the beaten path. It was nice a quiet there where we could just relax and enjoy our drinks and one another. The spirits were wonderful as well. Nice little tour you can take.

Our first stop in Hermann
I 'plotted' out our trip and this was first on the list. Didn't disappoint. If you like vodka, gin and/or whisky, you need to come here. The girl working there was great. Told us the history and about the distillery. Super friendly and perfect for...More ... read more

We had transportation issues earlier in the day and were having a rough time of it. Fortunately these folks had a good tour and a great distillery. They pretty much saved our trip from being a complete bust. They even dropped us off at the train station which was above and beyond. Thanks to Molly behind the bar and Sharon the tour ... read more
