We have visited the distillery before, but our visit July 22 was all the more memorable because we also experienced the Chihuly exhibit on the grounds. Try to make a Saturday night dinner reservation before they sell out. The dinner is fabulous, and if you time it right, you'll see the wonderful glass works in in natural night and illuminated after dark. Either Maker's or the Chihuly works would be perfect by themselves, but combining them make it ONE wonderful experience.

The visitor center is warm and well-decorated, and the tour (about 45 minutes in length) was the best $10 we've ever spent. The guide was friendly, personable, and knowledgeable and the facilities were fun and interesting to visit. Of course there's a tasting at the end, which for me was the best part. Lots to buy in the gift shop.
