Located in the rural Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia, Smooth Ambler produces world-class spirits with state-of-the-art distillery equipment in conjunction with the natural resources of the region; high-valley mountain air, crisp, clean water, ideal temperature variations, and friendly folks. Complementing their exceptional line of WV-made Appalachian Spirits is that of their Artisan Merchant Bottled products. From time to time in their travels they come across great spirits – not of their making, but of their liking – that might not otherwise be brought to market.
