COVID-19 Travel Information

Missouri is known for its wineries and breweries, but distilleries have been popping up rapidly throughout the state in recent years. Distilleries in the Show-Me State offer a variety of handcrafted spirits including whiskey, gin, vodka and bourbon.

You can also find exclusive products like Missouri Bourbon Whiskey – now an official whiskey style. This select spirit must meet certain conditions and can only be made by Missouri distillers. Kansas City Whiskey is a special blend of whiskey and sherry made in Missouri by J. Rieger & Co.

In 2019, the Missouri Craft Distillers Guild launched the "Missouri Spirits Expedition," the official distillery trail for the Show-Me State. This trail gives participants, age 21 and older, the opportunity to collect stamps at participating distilleries and earn rewards along the way.

Most of Missouri's distilleries have tasting rooms and many offer tours that provide a behind-the-scenes look at how these local spirits are made. Be sure to check each distillery's website for more information on tour times and availability.
