Connecticut is a good state for visiting distilleries with around 13 distilleries scattered around the state.
With just over a dozen distilleries to visit in Connecticut, it is definitely worth checking them out. It will take some time though since many of them are scattered throughout the state, as mentioned. However, there are several closer to Hartford which should make it easier if you wanted to tour the ones around that area or if you're a local since they are within decent distance to several distilleries right there. We recommend you frequently come back to this site as more and more of them are getting added each day. Tours typically last from 30 to 60 minutes per tour and they are well worth your time to check out the different ones. Each one has their own flavors and charm to experience.
What is also even more awesome is that most distilleries offer free samples of their liquor when you go through a tour as well. The tours are extremely interesting and fun to do too. They aren't just there to sample the liquor that you're looking forward to but are actually very informative and you get to meet a lot of like-minded people usually that are also doing the tour.
