My husband and I stopped in for a tasting while on vacation, and had an excellent time! The tasting host (and owner of the distillery), Roger, was fantastically welcoming. We loved hearing about what led the owner to open the distillery in Florida, and where...More

We appreciated their free tasting but did not like any of the liquor. As consistent liquor tasters, we were both surprised by how much we disliked everything. The bartender was also very short with our group. The coolest part of the distillery was that the...More

We had a great time at Marlin & Barrel Distillery tasting all the liquor! Noel was a riot & taught us a lot as well. We purchased the Smoked Pepper Vodka & the Whiskey. I would definitely recommend stopping here for a tasting!

We stop in Marlin and Barrel every time we go to Ferny Beach from Jax. The liquor is top notch and so are the staff. Noel is very knowledgable. Learned a lot during our tasting. A FB trip isn’t complete without visiting M&B Distillery!

There was no cost. We were there on a Saturday and they were open 12-6. They are closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

We stumbled upon the Distillery around 2pm and it was open for touring and tasting. I think since this is still a one-man business, the hours fluctuate. It may be good to call if you are coming at a specific time.
