Our attention to detail is apparent the moment you step into our distillery.

The 16,000-square-foot, open-air distillery serves as a brand showcase, spirits shop, educational venue, and tasting room. Middle West Spirits offers tours by appointment, and can accommodate groups ranging in size from 6 to 40. Tours and tastings last about an hour, depending on the size of the group, and can include additional cocktails showcasing local mixology at a variety of neighboring restaurants. All guests must be 21 years of age.

We are defined by the character our spirits exude.

It’s character that reflects the flavor Ohio’s soft red winter wheat gives our vodka. Our local fields are the key ingredient to our unique flavor profile, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

It’s character that comes only from our intensive, small-batch process that centers on time-tested distilling traditions. It’s how we ensure we stay true to our ingredients and bring natural flavor to the forefront of our spirits.

It’s character that comes from two passionate owners, who hand-touch every part of the process. And it comes from the artisans we partner with, who are as passionate about their craft as we are about ours.
