  • I would definitely recommend visit this facility. My daughter and I went for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. Well worth it!  more »
  • This is a family run distillery. All the ingredients for the bourbon, rye and vodka are grown on their farm. The spirits are phenomenal. The tour was extremely entertaining. The day we were there...  more »
  • Great place to spend an afternoon out in the country. Enjoy a drink or two there and just relax. The day we were there had a Mexican food truck and that was delicious too. The service is friendly...  more »
  • Great experience. Went for a tour. Enjoyed a tasty cocktail beforehand. The tour was detailed, entertaining and informative (tasting & souvenir shot glass included, only $10). Guide Teddy was awesome and all staff were great and friendly. Tasting room had beautiful atmosphere. Strongly recommend.
  • The farm-to-bottle system makes for a totally unique product line. As someone who drinks a lot of whiskey (maybe too much depending on who you ask), I can say it's really really good. Also the head distiller is unreasonably handsome.
  • If you like bourbon(and who doesn't) you should check this place out. The tour is fun and the tasting room/bar is really nice. The bourbon both regular and rye are some of the best small batch liquors we have had. They also do a vodka that is really good. If you are in the area stop by and sample it all.
  • Whiskey Acres is a great distillery and destination. The whiskey and spirits are amazing, the new tasting building is beautiful and spacious, and the story behind this place is incredible. Take the tour! The tour is so intimate, interesting, and fun. I’ve done tours at other whiskey distilleries in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ireland and this quaint simple tour is among my favorites. This is a family business and it really is apparent in everything they do. They are also family friendly. I had my infant with me through our tour and visit. Next time we go, we’ll pack a picnic, sit on the patio to enjoy the outdoors, and bring the kids. We’re lucky to live only 45 minutes away from Whiskey Acres, though this place is worth a visit no matter how far you’re traveling if you appreciate great whiskey and artisan spirits.
  • We visited most of the bourbon trail in July. Due to their seed to spirit program, we still learned a thing or two on the tour at Whiskey Acres. Good product. Walked away with several artisan products after the tasting. Illinois bourbon rocks.
