Come see a real craft distillery in action & partake of a sampling of 3 kinds of spirits, and a custom made signature cocktail. We look forward to answering your questions about distilleries you’ve always wanted to ask!
After the tour we will find someplace to eat.
Lucidi Distilling Co. is located in the Old Town Peoria Entertainment District and is housed at the Historic Fire Station No. 1. Originally constructed in 1920 as Peoria’s first movie theater, the building later became our first fire station in 1954. Operating as a fire station until 2006, this historic building has housed many of our city’s vital first responders over the years. That character and attitude is still found within the original brick and concrete walls. In an effort to show our appreciation, and more importantly to honor our past, the name on the building remains: “FIRE STATION NO. 1”.
Lucidi Distilling Co. makes daily mash runs using state of the art equipment, along with its hybrid pot still. At 330 gallons capacity, running one shift per day, we can easily make up to 120,000 bottles of spirits per year. We are crafting (and in some cases importing) 22 batch flavors of vodka and moonshine, along with gins, whiskeys, bourbons, agave spirits, rums, bitters, and other miscellaneous specialty spirits.
Our 330 gallon hybrid pot still system can make every kind of spirit under the sun. Our vodka tower accommodates an extra 12 distillation bubble plates, which can be fine-tuned for an array of different flavor profiles, in addition to using our 4 bubble plate copper tower. Want to learn how it all runs and see it with your own two eyes?
Lucidi Distilling Co. is located on Washington St., just W of 83rd Ave. & S of Grand Ave. in Peoria.
