A gang of industry iconoclasts, Letherbee Distillers came together through a twist of fate, punk shows, and late-night drinking at local dives.


Rewind to 2007: Brenton Engel is experimenting cooking moonshine in the countryside of Southern Illinois. Two years later, his “Illinois Joy” moonshine would create a cult following outside Chicago bars and with various restaurant staffs across the city. Brent soon starts bar tending and affiliating with some of Chicago’s most experienced cocktaileurs, who would soon team up to become Letherbee Distillers.


With absolutely zero influence from outside investors or marketers, Letherbee's level of authenticity is unsurpassed. Now distributing in 12 states across the US, as well as in Germany and Denmark, the product family consists of the original label gin, barrel-aged absinthe, seasonal gins, bësk, and fernet.
