Smooth Ambler Spirits
Smooth Ambler Spirits sells Appalachian whiskey patiently crafted in the mountains of Greenbrier County. TAG Galyean and John Little started making artisan spirits there in 2009, and, since then, Smooth Ambler has earned worldwide recognition for its bourbon. Its whiskeys have a bold, yet balanced flavor that comes from fine grains, clean natural water, and barrel aging. Appalachian craftsmanship is evident in every sip. 745 Industrial Park Road, Maxwelton, 304.497.3123, smoothambler.com, @smoothambler on Facebook
