Do you serve food?

We focus on the spirits and leave the food to the very capable restaurants of Rochelle and surrounding areas.  You can order in from any restaurant.

when will your bourbon be ready?

Our first batch of bourbon was barreled August 2020.  We taste it frequently to monitor the aging process.  The first release will be in 2024-2025 dependent on the taste profile we are looking for.   Adam and Don produce bourbon every week and we continue to add barrels to the Rickhouse every 3-6 months.

What makes your distillery different from others?

Every step of the farm to table process includes a member of our family.  The grain is inspected, cleaned, and milled before it leaves our farm and fermented immediately.  Our two distillers have over 20 years' combined distilling experience with meticulous attention to detail.  Their fermentation and distillation practices are not the fastest or cheapest; but ensure the highest quality spirit.  You can taste the difference!

I am another distillery/supplier looking for large quantities of product.  Do you offer your spirits in bulk?

Yes we have aged bourbon and rye whiskey available in bulk.  We can also discuss custom mash bills with a minimum quantity.  Please see the BULK SPIRITS page and email kennayfarmsdistilling@gmail.com for more information.

do you offer tours?

At this time we offer private tours with a minimum of six people.  Please email kennayfarmsdistilling@gmail.com to schedule a private tour.  Follow our Facebook page for "Pop Up" public tours.

Do you Have Gaming at the Distillery?

Yes we do!  Gaming machines are located on the first level of the distillery (turn left at the base of the stairs to the Tasting Room).


All major credit cards and cash are accepted.  Merchant fees continue to rise.  We have not implemented a credit card surcharge at this time; but encourage cash transactions to help avoid these rising fees.

Who do I contact for a donation request?

Email requests to kennayfarmsdistilling@gmail.com for our review.  We recently brewed the Homefront IPA where 100% of the proceeds benefited the Solder's Angels campaign; supporting our past and active service men and women.  Due to a large number of requests not all can be responded to individually.

Can I purchase a gift card remotely?

Absolutely! You can click this LINK to purchase an e-gift card from the comfort of your home. 

do you offer Contract Distilling or Private barrel programs

We offer contract distilling with a minimum quantity.  We have 15 gallon barrels of rye whiskey and 53 gallon barrels of bourbon available for tasting and choosing as your private barrel.  Please email kennayfarmsdistilling@gmail.com for more information.
