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

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

We stopped by the distillery during a road trip and had a great time. Our tour guide was very informative and made us laugh. I love that they use locally sourced ingredients to make all of their spirits. The tasting afterwards allowed us to sample some of their products. We ended up buying their honey whiskey (delicious by the way).... More

Stopped by the distillery to pick up some of the new Iowish Cream Liqueur. It has a light, unique taste due to being a corn product. This batch will sell out quickly.

A group of us toured this small distillery, located on the banks of a quaint old Mississippi River steamboat town, Le Claire. Our tour leader/receptionist/gift shop seller/Tasting Room hostess(one-and-the-same!) was full of knowledge and very personable. She is quite well-trained in the distilling processes of their various spirits. It's a fun way to spend part of an afternoon.

Interesting, short tour of a small distillery and how they produce some of their unique products. There is a tasting at the end of the tour and a small gift shop.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The tour was fun along with the generous sampling at the end. Part of our group had to buy a few items to take home with them. A great place to stop while you are in town. Good for all ages!

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
