The Illinois Craft Distillers Association was formed in by, and for, businesses operating in the State of Illinois under a Class IX Craft Distiller license under the Illinois Liquor Control Act. We are a private and voluntary entity, organized and operated exclusively for non-profit purposes as a trade association and business league to:

  • Promote the common interests of our members;
  • Advance and improve the business and regulatory environments for our members;
  • Promote public understanding and to educate the public about craft distilling; and
  • Facilitate training, education, and research in the craft distilling field

We have several committees working on initiatives important to our members, and will be launching several new initiatives in 2016.
