1220 Artisan Spirits

St. Louis, MO

We felt there was a lot of commonality between craft beer and gin. When we brew beer, a lot of it isn’t just water, yeast, hops and barley; we used a lot of different fruits, herbs and spices in order to complement a hop or malt. We felt gin gave us a similar opportunity. We also wanted to create a specific tonic that enhanced the Origin gin that we created to hopefully create that perfect gin and tonic.

 

Arcana Distilling

St. Louis, MO

Our mission is to create a new model for American manufacturing, promote the ancient art of distilling, and utilize the local bounty found in Missouri with our worker owned distillery to create premium rye whiskey and American applejack.

With respect toward the ancient alchemy of creating spirits, Arcana prides itself on sourcing local ingredients, distilling, aging, and bottling in one building. Our rye whiskey and American applejack were created to remind drinkers that craftsmanship and local ingredients don’t have to be expensive, but they do make the fundamental difference in taste.

Copper Run Distillery 

Walnut Shade, MO

Copper Run is a small-batch craft distillery that favors quality and stands firmly aligned by its slogan, small-batch BIG PASSION.

The Copper Run family of spirits is heavily influenced by local resources, the pure limestone-rich water, the famous Missouri white oak barrels, and the ever changing climate in the Ozarks create a unique distilling and maturing environment but that alone’s not enough to justify the popularity of our products! The secret lies in our distillation techniques and methods that we have developed over the past 10 years; that allow us to make smooth and wonderfully tasting whiskey and rum right out of the still, making the barrel ageing process a mere flavoring and conditioning technique.

White Mule Distillery

Purdy, MO

Our whisky is made with a few simple ingredients: corn, water, wheat, barley, yeast, and hickory. Out of the hillside comes the water that my family drinks and what we make our spirits with.

The process is slow, but in our lightening speed society, maybe this is a good thing.
