LeClaire, Iowa. It's a special place. A place where life on the land is intimately married to the flow of the waters. 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.

When in LeClaire, be sure to stop by the Mississippi River Distilling Company. The range of spirits is interesting and tasty. The Big Peach Liquor is great - I put some on my ice cream when I arrived home and it was delicious! The River Rose Gin is tasty and a great gin. We did not take the tour but... More

Took the tour. It was very informative. The gentleman giving the tour answered our questions without any hesitation. I would definitely go back. They gave us samples at the end of the tour to taste. Didn't have any of the strawberry vodka, but the peach was good. Told us when the things they were out of would be available and... More

We had a little time to kill when taking in Le Claire's Tug-of-war festivities, and stopped in at the Mississippi River Distilling Company, located right on the main street above the River Front. We know about Kentucky distilleries, but not Iowa. Yet this seems to be an offshoot of the recent Ethanol industry boom. A Four o'clock Friday afternoon tour... More

We stopped by on our way through town and did the tour. Was short but informative and our guide was a hoot. Tasting after was great. I think between the 4 couples we purchased about at least a dozen assorted bottles. Love the peach liqueur, wish we could get it back home. Beautiful location and very nice building. We will...

I took a tour of this place while on a business trip, cool place, owner was funny and interesting, very clean and new, and you could taste test if you wanted at the end.

The distillery is small only 3 rooms but as we learned on the tour they have room to grow. The brief tour takes place it the room where all the equipment is. You learn about production and their use of local products. After the tour you go into the tasting room. There is a beautiful bar with windows that look... More

Started a day trip with a tour of the Mississippi River Distillery. The tour was very informative and the spirits are delicious. Brought home a bottle of SEASONAL No. 12 - Queen Bee Honey Whiskey and will be going back for more.

In town for a lunch at Sneaky Pete's, walked up the street and saw Mississippi River Distilling was offering tours on the hour from 12 Noon to 4 pm. Ducked in and decided to join the group. It was given by an employee who said he has been around about 5 years, and our tour group was roughly 15 people.... More

Popped into this inviting looking shop. Were warmly greeted by the owners. We didn't take the tour, as were were pressed for time. Bought the Iowish Whiskey and Strawberry Vodka. Our whiskey drinker was impressed with the smoothness and the vodka has yet to be enjoyed. The owner's suggestion was to add to lemonade and if you wish, fresh strawberries.... More
