Vicario gin was used for some of the drinks at the event, and after we tried the gin and learned about their micro-distillery + tasting room in Greer (at 840 Old Jones Rd.), we knew we had to check it out.
We went out to their Greer location for a tasting, and now we want to tell you how you can #TryThis.
Vicario tasting 🍷
What we tried:
Vicario specializes in making liqueurs, and we got to try most of everything they make. When we arrived, Renato Vicario and his wife Janette Wesley took us on a tour of their farm. #FunFact: In addition to their Greer farm, they also have a farm in Italy at Villa Sant’Andrea near Cortona.
After the farm + distillery tour, we headed to their beautiful tasting room.
We got to try many liqueurs, including some award-winning ones. My personal favorite? The coffee liqueur. You can visit their tasting room on Fridays and Saturdays or during the week by appointment. The tours + tastings are $10 per person.
The merchandise. Not only do they sell their liqueurs in large and small bottles, they also sell glassware, an assortment of cocktail and herb books, chocolate, and more.
What we’re still talking about:
Vicario is a family business, and the whole family is talented. Renato is obviously an expert in liqueur, and Janette designed all of the labels for the Vicario liqueur bottles. Each one is a true work of art, and you can see them all on their website.
