Welcome to Iowa Distilling Company. We hope you enjoy our hand-crafted creations made from Iowa's finest natural ingredients. –Cheers

Iowa Distilling Company is located in a 100-year-old brick building in Cumming, Iowa (Warren County) right across the street from the Cumming Tap along the Great Western Trail. Cumming is a small town of about 350 people located in the center of corn country. We see corn fields when we look out our front windows; not factories or city streets. In addition to bicycles, the typical traffic along Cumming Avenue is tractors and farm equipment. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

It’s an honest, hard working community that reflects the best of America’s Heartland. We hope that you can taste that heritage in every sip of our Iowa spirits.

About the Owners

Todd Dunkel and Phil Bubb, are the owners. They are both whiskey and rum enthusiasts, who started planning this back in 2008. They believe Iowa is the perfect place for a distillery, especially for making whiskey, as they are surrounded with some of the best grain on Earth. They are working daily to come up with new, different, and better, premium spirits for our customers to enjoy.

They bike on the trail daily when we have time, and love the entire bike crowd that frequents their distillery.

They plan on sponsoring, and being onsite for many of the BIKEIOWA races and events...

The Iowa Distilling Company Small-Batch Process

Local Ingredients, Hand Distilled in Ridiculously Small Batches

Most American whiskey is made in factories humming with computer-controlled machinery. That method certainly makes a lot of whiskey in a hurry…but that is not our method.

Our process starts when we visit our local farmers’ coop to purchase Iowa corn. It is the best corn on the planet, grown by farmers who know a thing or two about growing corn. We bring the corn back to our distillery in Cumming, Iowa, where we grind it into flour. FIND OUT MORE...
