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.

Very informative tour regarding how they produce their various products. They offered us free tastings. Very kind. The Iowish Creme, the Apple Pie, the Vodka, and the Gin. Do not miss this spot.

I was impressed with the Whiskey. I sampled the honey and bought a bottle. Then I sampled the apple Annie whiskey and bought a bottle. I had to stop sampling. Worth the stop.

We only had time for a short stop and did not take the tour. We were promptly greeted by a friendly staff member as we were looking over the products for sale. We asked to try a sample of the Iowish Cream Liqueur and promptly bought a bottle after tasting! Very good with hint of coffee, cinnamon & vanilla. The... More

Hubby heard about this place and we had to stop. Unfortunately hubby was taking meds and could not part take of the samples. I had to sacrifice myself. However not a fan of distilled beverages, I will say I totally enjoyed the smoothness of the vodka, gin and the Cody Road bourbon. They mixed the gin and vodka with a... More

The tour was very fun and informative. It is great to know that all spirits are made and bottled at the facility and all the grains are grown within 25 miles. The tasting was awesome!

We happened to catch a tour as it started. Nice clean establishment. Good, informative tour. The samples afterward had us purchasing a bottle of Cody Road and we will certainly be back for a First Friday function!

We stopped by the Mississippi River Distilling Company on a whim and got there just in time for a tour. The store front and manufacturing tour is very small, but the tour was very informative. Free samples of all their products are offered at the end of the tour.

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
