Rock River Distillation is Dave Ackerman’s “hobby gone awry,”
The craft whiskey distillery, located at Ackerman’s home south of Rock Rapids, is an effort to make whiskey to drink for the flavor of the whiskey instead of as a mixed drink.
“There’s all kind of alcohol on the market if you want to get inebriated, but I’m trying to build a more sophisticated experience if you will,” Ackerman said.
That’s why Rock River Distillation’s slogan reads “There’s no whiskey too strong, only men too weak.”
