Foundry Distilling Company is part of the Foundry project,

a redevelopment of the Rock Island Railroad Car Bar into a multi-tenant food and beverage project. In addition to our distillery, the project features The Hall and The Kitchen.

The centerpiece of our distillery is a 29-foot-tall, 30-inch-diameter column still that was designed and built right here in Iowa. It offers several unique features, including internal LED lights and cameras. It's estimated to be among the top five stills in America on a throughput basis.

We also have a 500-gallon copper pot still that was also designed and built here in Iowa, as well as a 500-gallon open-topped cypress wood fermenter.
