Paddle to Sweet Shine

We have teamed up with Bloomery Plantation Distillery, in Charles Town, WV, crafting a fun, festive and flavorful day where participants paddle the mellow, wilderness-surrounded Shenandoah River and then tour a local distillery and taste a variety of their handcrafted limoncello and liquor goodness.
