  • A small, family distillery in DeKalb was welcoming and fun. Took the tour and learned about the process and why Whiskey Acres' products are of the highest quality. Not really for kids but fun for coup...  more »

  • What an opportunity to see a 5th generation farm run by the awesome Walter Family. Had a great time with forever friends-picnic lunch under a beautiful walnut tree. Tour of distillery was entertaining and informative. Topped off with a tasting of the spirits! Priceless 🥃
  • Excellent distillery. Worth the visit. Bar is small but they have a lot of shaded outdoor seating. Very nice for sipping a cocktail. They distill bourbon, whiskey and vodka.
  • Best tour I have ever been on! Job was absolutely amazing. Wonderful drinks all around.
  • I just LOVED it out there! It's a beautiful place with exceptionally nice and welcoming people! Cuddle were unbelievably goooooooood! The whiskey I bought is great as well. Can't wait to come back again. It's a MUST VISIT for everybody who likes really good drinks and a nice cozy atmosphere! Thanks Jen for the tour, it's unforgettable!
  • Had a great time at Whiskey Acres last night. Went there with my wife as we were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something different. I'm so glad we went. It was a surprisingly cold day for late May but the fireplace was going so it was nice and warm and it seemed like the perfect atmosphere for some whisky cocktails. The drinks were terrific and the folks that worked there were so nice. We all laughed and chatted for probably a couple hours, like we were old friends. We'll definitely be going back there soon to take the tour and try some other drinks on the menu.
