The Iowa Distilling Company Small-Batch Process
Local Ingredients, Hand Distilled in Ridiculously Small Batches
Most American whiskey is made in factories humming with computer-controlled machinery. That method certainly makes a lot of whiskey in a hurry…but that is not our method.
After we distill our whiskey, we distill it again, at least one more time. This second distillation makes a smooth whiskey even smoother. Finally, we add pure water to reduce the whiskey’s final proof before bottling.
