There was 4 in our party and went on a tour with Jon. He was great, kept the tour very entertaining while telling us about Whiskey Acres. The 3 ladies in the tasting room were also great. Can't wait to go again in the spring!!!!!
My husband and I had date night and decided to check out this gem. The tour was fantastic and informative and the drinks were fabulous too! The staff was so welcoming and friendly. We highly recommend it!
Whiskey Acres is one hour west of Chicago. My wife and I did the tour. They have high quality bourbon, whiskey and vodka. There were a bunch of fun people on the tour. Our guide, Jon, was very informative and entertaining as well.
Family owned distillery with down home farm warmth. We learned a lot about bourbon and whiskey and vodka. Really appreciated the humor, the stories and tales about the distillery process. We're impressed and will tell our friends about this wonderful place in Dekalb. Well done....More

We are a family business and pride ourselves on being "family friendly." So bring on the kiddos! In fact, you just may run into one of my wee ones running around as well. Heck, they could probably GIVE the tour by now! Tours... More
We are a family business and pride ourselves on being "family friendly." So bring on the kiddos! In fact, you just may run into one of my wee ones running around as well. Heck, they could probably GIVE the tour by now! Tours last about an hour and of course, no sampling for them but we do offer free kiddy cocktails for the under 21 set. Our tasting room reopens 4/1. Details and hours can be found on our website. We look forward to seeing you soon!
