Get Spirited at Blaum Bros Distilling in Galena

Galena actually has a pretty interesting history when it comes to distilling spirits, dating back to the Jo Daviess Distillery, which closed during the Prohibition era.  Today, that legacy is carried on by local establishment Blaum Bros Distilling.  They’ve been in business since 2013 and have been working hard to distill world-class spirits right here in the heart of downtown Galena IL. The entire process from start to finish, from the milling of the grains to the mashing, fermentation, and distillation into its final product.

Blaum Bros Distilling was formed around the brothers’ love for whisky and grew from there. Today, they produce an incredible line of handcrafted spirits in downtown Galena IL, including whiskey, bourbon, rye, vodka, gin, and more. If you love distilling (and the products of the process), you’ll want to take a tour of Blaum Bros Distilling.  They are offered daily and include visits to the distillation area, the barrel room, and the comfortable tasting room and cocktail bar. The tours of Blaum Bros Distilling typically last 45 minutes and cost just $10.

If you don’t want to take a tour but still want to sample the incredible spirits made right here in downtown Galena IL, you’re in luck!  The cocktail bar at Blaum Bros Distilling is open every day of the week.

These delightful spirits aren’t the only worthwhile tasting in Galena, however.  The area is also home to a number of wineries, including the downtown tasting rooms of Galena Cellars and Massbach Ridge winery, a brewery, and a newcomer to Main Street, Champagne on Main. If you decide you want to make a day of tasting in the beautiful countryside surrounding Galena, take a tour with Galena Wine Tours.

And, of course, don’t forget about the exceptional wine and appetizer tray waiting for you at Jail Hill Inn! We feature a broad range of house wines, but we also have some new custom-label wines from Galena Cellars that you can upgrade to.  These trays are delivered fresh to your room each day and can be enjoyed throughout at your leisure.  It’s one of the many perks of staying with us at our Galena Bed and Breakfast!
