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.

Iowa law now lets you drink more than a sip of their outstanding adult beverages. There's also an outdoor seating area where you can watch the Mississippi River.

Nice atmosphere, great tour. Tour guide was informative, but not overbearing. The bartenders were informative during the tasting.

The laws just changed in Iowa allowing distilleries to sell their product in a cocktail. We stopped in for a drink. Nice atmosphere that overlooks the river and friendly staff. They offer tours on the hour most of the day. The dry humor from the...More

This place is spotless. Tour was very informative and had a tasting room after tour. Most of their ingredients are supplied locally. 105 proof bourbon was smooth

It is when they have it. A lot of items are "seasonal"
