In March of 2020, we received our state and federal permits to distill and became the first legal distillery in Racine County since Prohibition. From our first steps down the path to owning a distillery to our current operations, creating an exceptional experience for our guests has always been top of mind. Our Tasting Room is open to the public for samples and handmade cocktails. We look forward to connecting with you!
We are a family-owned and operated microdistillery located in the heart of our favorite place on earth - Waterford, Wisconsin. We moved here in 2010 and immediately fell in love with both the place and the people. In the coming years, we were inspired by others to become more involved in the community and took opportunities to serve as volunteers for local organizations and events.
The more we served, the more we came to see what a vibrant and talented community we were a part of. As much as we enjoyed our hometown, it became increasingly clear to us that Main Street was not a reflection of nor a gathering place for this exceptional community. Others saw the same thing. Together, we began brainstorming on what it could look like, and, in 2018, we first conceived the idea of a microdistillery on Main Street.
After two years of planning, we received our state and federal permits to distill in March 2020. Due to the pandemic, we put our original plans on hold and spent the year making hand sanitizer 10 gallons at a time to serve our community.
On July 10, 2021, we finally opened to serve what we had dreamed of: super-small batches of premium spirits and cocktails made by hand with love. We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from our community and our visitors. And we're not done. We have been blessed with an incredible team, who we affectionately call The Stillhouse Family, and they are ready to serve you. We invite you to join us in our cozy, upscale Tasting Room.
