They have permanently closed. If you enjoyed their spirits, go to Star Union Spirits in Peru, Illinois. The own some of Tailwinds’ aging spirits and you may recognize one of the master distillers.

on the advice of a good friend that I should try TAILWINDS, I stopped in one day to give it a try. they only have rum or tequila drinks so you have to like them. the staff is very good and can suggest a few good drinks to try. I did not take the tour but I know they give samples at the end. they make a very good product so I am sure that whatever drink you choose will be good. for me it was a good first visit and I am sure I will be back to sample some other drinks. so when in Plainfield give TAILWINDS give them a try and see what you think, you may find you like rum and tequila. HAVE FUN!!

Ben gave us an absolutely fascinating tour and the multiple tastings were fun as well. Also enjoyed the unusual mixology options in their quaint bar.

Two early 30s couples there on a Fri night for the tour and cocktails. Pros: quality rum and tequila, well made cocktails. Cons: tour guide was mediocre at his job, slow service from the bar, live music is too loud for the small space, expensive. This place could be so much better than it is. Shame.
