With a heightened awareness of the changes occurring in the world, WHD does its best to improve the environment. By recycling the chill water used for the stills that produce our 100% Blue Weber agave spirit, DROVE, very little water is wasted during the production process. The 1,000-gallon water tank preserves water that would normally go right down the drain. The electric steam generator uses minimal electric to heat the wash to distill saving on electrical drain common in the warmer months.

DISTILLERY TOUR & TASTING
2 hours (Average visit is 3 hours)
Wild Hare Distillery is a small batch producer of DROVE Spirits. When you visit our distillery and tasting room, Wendy or Jim will walk you through our award-winning process. The tour is about 35 to 45 minutes, depending on questions, and they love questions! The warehouse is hot when the stills are running so be sure to wear appropriate clothes and shoes.
The tasting itself is an experience that takes time. You are encouraged to savor the distinct flavors slowly. Wendy will walk you through how to taste the spirit and what compliments them, so that you get the most out of your experience. The tasting room distillery and additional space can accommodate 20 people
Wild Hare Distillery is often fully operational Friday through Sundays from October through May.

TASTING & TOURS FAQ
Do you accept walk-ins to enjoy cocktails or a flight?
Due to our small size, we have found it works best for everyone to text or call and make a reservation to visit. Typically, it is easy to pop in if you call to make sure we have space for you and your party, however, we are not always at the distillery so may not have the doors open if you swing by. Please text 602.402.2329, so we can schedule.
Should our party arrange for car service to visit the distillery?
Yes! We always encourage all guests to designate a driver or arrange for car service. We want you to have fun when visiting and get to your next destination safely. Remember, all WHD spirits in the distillery are 80 proof and higher. Our distillery is centrally located in Tempe and only minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
Do you have a cocktail menu?
We do! In fact, most guests enjoy a cocktail prior to the tour as they settle in & visit with one another.
Can I buy a bottle while at the distillery?
Yes. All products produced are available for sale at the distillery. A list of locations that serve and sell our products is also listed on the website.
Do you offer any special tastings?
In the fall of 2021, WHD partnered with Stone Grindz in Scottsdale, AZ, a local chocolatier. We offer a tasting paired with select chocolates from our friends Steven and Kasey. We also have the bars available for purchase.
Can I reserve the tasting room for a private gathering?
Yes. Please contact [email protected] for details. The distillery can accommodate up to 20 people and we have additional space for up to 10 more. For a small fee, we offer the room for a minimum of 3 hours with a 2-drink minimum or 1 tasting and tour per person. We can set-up a table for your group if you wish to bring in food or have it delivered.
For groups of 13 or more, a fee of $200 is automatically added. These additional fees pay for assistance, food set-up, breakdown and packaging.
I’m not interested in a tour, do you offer just a flight or a tasting of your products?
Yes. We offer a flight of 6 products for $20. Each product over 6 is $2. Premium, special additions are $5 each. We find most people never need to add to their tasting.
When do you typically offer tours and tastings?
If you have a small party (less than 6 people), we can accommodate those requests most easily on Fridays at 4 pm or Saturdays at 1 pm or 4 pm. For groups of 6 to 12, please text or call 602.402.2329, so we can work out a day and time for your group.
