Red Eagle Distillery is located in Geneva, Ohio. Red Eagle Distillery is in a beautiful barn that dates back to the 1800’s. This is the first bourbon and whiskey to be made legally in Ohio since the prohibition.
Visit Red Eagle Distillery
Red Eagle Distillery is located on South River Road between South River Winery and M Cellars. The owners also own South River Winery. This is the first bourbon and whiskey to be made legally in Ohio since the prohibition. Red Eagle Distillery is a great place to visit. It has ample seating outdoors and indoors. No matter the time of year you visit, Red Eagle Distillery is busy! As you can see our most recent visit was during a beautiful snowfall!
The bar and seating inside of Red Eagle Distillery has a modern yet inviting atmosphere with the beautiful wood floors and bars. Red Eagle Distillery is different from other distilleries because they personally know all the farmers who supply the grains for their products as well as the grapes for the vodka. Sourcing local ingredients is important to Red Eagle Distillery. They realize that sourcing local ingredients may not be the quickest way but they know and appreciate the hands that tended the crops.
Pro Tip: Need to use the restroom? It is located in the red building behind the barn! You can also walk across the street to M Cellars. We have seen people walking through the vineyard rows to South River Winery as well, however it is best to ask first if that route is okay to take.
