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.

My boyfriend and myself were there yesterday March 28 and really enjoyed the tour and tastings afterwards! Garrett was very nice and was a pleasure to talk to. I'm sure we will visit again! Thanks!

My husband and I came here on Monday, March 23, while in town to see the Freedom Rock, located not too far from this establishment! We were met by Garret, one of the owners, and from the getgo, we felt at ease and knew we were in for a treat. He explained the whole process in excellent detail and even... More

This is a very small distillery but very nice. The tour was free and very informative and you got free samples of there product. I will go back next time I'm in town.

This is one GREAT distillery! Ryan and Garret Burchett and all the crew there have a wonderful addition to the downtown of LeClaire, Iowa. Can't wait to come up for "first Friday" when the new veranda is open. Also fabulous products! I just love the Honey Whiskey!

This place was really nice. But was kind of distracted by other people coming in and out of the store. Also as the person was giving the tour, some of the employees just stared at you. Felt kind of uncomfortable.

We were on a 44 hour road trip and decided to make a few adjustments so that we could stop in at this distillery. We arrived just as they opened which allowed us to ask a bunch of questions and have a private tasting. There was not one taste that we had the pucker face. We even liked the gin... More

We went to this distillery while passing through Le Claire. The owners are extremely proud of their place and product and should be! It is beautiful, the product is great and it's all from the heartland! I love that everything they use to make their products is local from the grain to the barrels! Very cool worth stopping. The tour... More

Aside from taking the tours and tasting the samples, we've stopped here a couple of times just to run in and purchase items direct from the distillery. The Cody Road Bourbon is pretty good. So is the honey whiskey they make, which is a special run when the honey is ready. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Take the... More
