Explore an artisan distillery with German roots. Tucked into the scenic hills along the Missouri River on the historic Hermann Farm, Black Shire Distillery offers meticulously handcrafted spirits and a truly memorable experience.
Our distillery is located on an historic 1840s still site, and our distiller, Derek LeRoy, continues the tradition and legacy of German distilling as we craft small-batch, high-quality spirits. We offer bourbon, blended whiskey, an American gin, eau de vie, vodka, a best-selling blackberry whiskey and rye, which is our distiller’s favorite offering. Look for limited-release seasonal gins and vermouths as well as our cask-aged brandy to be released soon.
Our spirits are only available here, so please visit us and enjoy a taste during a tour of the Farm as you explore the grounds, or you may join us at our tasting room on Gutenberg Street at the Hofgarten, in downtown Hermann.
