GRAIN TO GLASS

At Mississippi River Distilling Company, we're surrounded by some of the finest grain fields in the world. It only makes sense to make the finest spirits from that grain as well.

We purchase farm fresh grain, directly from the farmers who grow it. 100% of our grains come from within 25 miles of our distillery.

On our distillery tour, you get to see the entire process of spirit making from beginning to end. We're one of only a handful of distillers in the U.S. who take this "grain to glass" small batch distillation approach.

What "grain to glass" means is that when you come to visit us, you'll see us handling every step of the process ourselves, under one roof to take our fresh grain and make it into your favorite liquors.

We sort and clean the grain. From there, we mill the grain into a flour-like consistency. We cook the grain to make our mash and then add yeast to let it ferment. We distill the fermented mash and then filter it and blend it to proof. From there, it either goes into a barrel or a bottle. We bottle our spirits by hand.

The important thing is that it is all done under our watchful eye. We don't outsource anything. It's not always terribly efficient, but we pride ourselves on inefficiencies that result in a premium product. We know you'll grow to appreciate our "grain to glass" approach once our spirits go from that glass onto your tastebuds!
