The Tasting Room is Open!

Dead Reckoning Distillery building in Norfolk, VA

Touring our distillery is a great way to learn about the distilling process. You can see how we distill rum in our handmade, traditional copper pot still and experience the entire process of making rum.

We will walk you through the process from start to finish answering any questions you may have.


Friday: 5pm-9pm

Saturday: noon-9pm

Stop by the distillery for a guided tour to see firsthand how we create small batch rum in Norfolk, Virginia. We will walk you through the entire process of making our rum, starting with the molasses we have shipped in from the gulf coast. You’ll learn how critical every step of the process is from fermentation to distillation.

You will hear how we made our still by hand from flat sheets of copper. If you’ve ever wondered how rum is made, you’ve come to the right place.

If you would like a tour ask a bartender and we’ll be happy to show you around. (as long as we have adequate staff)

Tour groups limited to 10 people. Please call us for more information.



You must be at least 21 years of age to drink any alcohol. Because we must enforce the state maximum per person per day, we must keep track of all tastings. No matter your age, we have to verify your name before you can taste our spirits.
