For centuries, people here have looked to the water for a sense of calm, a spirit of enjoyment and a connection to a heritage that is uniquely their own.That marriage of land and water is now embodied in a different kind of spirit. The Mississippi River Distilling Company hand craft Vodka, Gin, Whiskey, and Specialty Spirits slow and pure near the banks of the Mississippi River. Born from the finest grains, harvested just up the hill from the distillery. It’s a spirit born of land and water that draws each of us curiously back to a different era. Made for you, not for for the masses. « less

The free tour was interesting and informative. The tour guide was very funny and friendly. We would recommend stopping in for the tour and tasting. We are so happy we decided to stop. We did take he a bottle of the seasonal bottle of peach liquor. Great to add to some wine!

So disappointed in the customer service there! In town celebrating my mom's 60th birthday and my sister-in-laws 35th . Came in at the end of a tour not realizing it. The four of us wants to try two samples and the bartender was not very helpful. It was like we were discouraged because we miss the tour time :(.

This is a nice little distillery in Le Claire. If you drive from the South it's on the right hand side on the main road through the town centre. The tour was free of charge and we had three small samples of their products. Look at their website for opening hours and the tours. It was a nice and informative... More

Who knew that we would come across this distillery while visiting the Quad Cities. They were quite informative about the processes used to make vodka, gin, whisky, and bourbon. We were able sample these items, and boy were they smooth. I'm not much of a whisky drinker, but I was totally impressed with the smoothness. We bought their season item... More

What a neat place! This distillery has only been open for a few years, but they seem to be thriving, and how wonderful! When I first heard about this distillery, I automatically assumed they only distilled whiskey, but I was quite mistaken. They make several different types of liquor - they have a bourbon, a vodka, a gin, and several... More

The tour was great and informative. The produce a variety of liquors, all made with local ingredients. They have a great tasting after the tour. I had the peach liquor and it was fantastic. The liquor is available for purchase right at the distillery.

We stopped-in to look and ended up taking the tour. It was given by the owners. It was very interesting to learn about their way of distilling spirits there. They seem very committed to using local ingredients to impart unique flavors into their products. Afterwards, it was fun to go into the tasting room and learn first-hand how they tasted.... More

I was going to say this distilling company is a nice little addition to Le Claire and changed it to the Quad Cities. Along with our micro brews in the QC this is really great. I think it is a wonderful place to bring visitors, sample the gin, bourbon, and/or vodka and even buy a favorite. With American Pickers, this... More

Owners give a tour that is free and includes a tasting of the vodkas, gin and bourbons made. They use all local ingredients and suppliers (within a 25 mile range) and are committed to the local economy. The strawberry vodka was wonderful with lemonade! Stop in and enjoy!

I enjoy local distilleries and this one does not disappoint. From Vodka to Bourbon, sample in the tasting room and select which you liked best. The Strawberry Vodka was my favorite. And ingredients are local. It is a new facility nicely laid out with a short tour. The tour is not required for sampling - another plus when on a... More
