Mississippi River Distilling is a family owned and operated distillery in “the heartland” – located in Le Claire, Iowa right on the Mississippi River (which creates the state divide between Iowa and Illinois). By all descriptions its emphasis is on all things local, down to the grain used coming from within 25 miles of the distillery – and all things craft, down to the handwriting appearing on each bottle.
Ryan and Garret Burchett are brothers, co-owners of Mississippi River Distilling and also both distillers. They also wear other hats as part of their integral involvement in the distillery.
