Craftsman spirits are hand-made in small batches in our “grain-to-glass” distillery.  Each step in the process is carefully controlled... from mashing to fermenting, distilling and bottling... producing truly authentic spirits of the highest quality.

Our Craftsman Gin is derived from grapes and is infused with botanicals including juniper berries, orange peel, lemon zest and lavender.

Why make gin from grapes?

Gin is most commonly made from grain…but it doesn’t have to be.  Because River Bend operates a winery as well as a distillery, we have a proven source for high-quality local grapes…from our on-site vineyard as well as from other vineyards across Wisconsin.  A subtle difference in flavor is the result, which differentiates Craftsman Gin from its competition.

White Whiskey


Our Craftsman White Whiskey is produced from locally farmed Wisconsin grain hand-crafted into an exceptionally smooth whiskey.

What is white whiskey?

White whiskey is made in exactly the same way as any other whiskey, except that it forgoes extended barrel aging.  The result is a whiskey that is clear in color and lighter than other whiskeys, while maintaining more flavor than clear spirits.  When you want the character of a great whiskey, but something lighter for summer sipping, nothing beats Craftsman White Whiskey!

Our Craftsman Vodka is proudly made using locally sourced grains right here in Wisconsin.

What makes our Vodka different?

Aside from being 100% Wisconsin grown, we are very selective during the distilling process when it comes to Craftsman Vodka.  We use only the best "cuts" and distill to the highest level of purity, resulting in a clean, smooth vodka…another benefit to handcrafting all of our spirits in small batches.
