Fox River Distilling Company is located in Geneva, Illinois and produces exceptionally high quality premium small batch spirits.
Owned by the Orlando family, the company opened in 2014 and built the distillery in the Geneva Business Park which is home to many food related businesses. The company and several of its staff are members of The American Distilled Spirits Association, the American Distilling Institute, and the Illinois Craft Distilling Association.
Fox River Distilling Company produces premium handcrafted artisan spirits on a 100 gallon Artisan Hybrid Still. Local grains are used in the batch production of Vodka, Gin, Moonshine, Bourbon and several seasonal spirits. The main ingredient in almost all of the spirits is corn. They use an organic corn which is bought from a farmer twenty minutes from the distillery. The farmer grinds the corn and delivers it to the distillery as needed. Fox River Distilling Company places an emphasis on sourcing most products and services locally (where possible) in order to stimulate the local economy and build brand awareness.
