Distillery & Brewery

Following a two year renovation, the historic Hub theatre in downtown Rochelle is now home to the largest craft distillery in Illinois: Kennay Farms Distilling.

Grain from the Kennay’s 5th generation family farm is grown, harvested, milled, transported, and distilled all by a member of the Kennay family.

Adam Kennay, head distiller, designed a twin still system capable of producing many types of clear and dark spirits.  Our house made vodka using corn from our farm was the first product off the still.  Gin will soon follow.  Bourbon and whiskey will age in the Rickhouse just west of the distillery for 3.5-5 years.

Don Klatt, head brewer, brings his decade of brewing experience to the production floor creating recipes for ales, lagers, and IPAs as well as premium and seasonal beers.
