John Roberts Fox News

January 2, 2012 by staff 

John Roberts Fox News, John Roberts, senior national correspondent for Fox News, toured the distillery in LeClaire while visiting family this month. He wrote a piece for FoxNews .com called “A New Use For Corn In Iowa.”

“When you walk into the tasting room, with its expansive view of the Mississippi River, you’re hooked,” Roberts wrote. Roberts called the distillery’s River Pilot vodka “world class” and enjoyed the River Baron artisan spirit, describing a “nose that at once gives off aromas of tequila and bourbon.” He found the River Rose gin “a little too flowery for the wife and me.”

He was disappointed that he couldn’t try the bourbon, which is out of stock until March.

The distillery is owned by brothers Ryan and Garrett Burchett. “It’s a real thrill to have someone who has seen the world tell us he gets a kick out of what we’re doing here and enjoys our products,” Ryan said.

You, too, can visit the distillery, which gives free tours daily on the hour from 12 to 4 p.m.
