We grow Grain to Bottle, Award Winning Spirits.

Born from 126 years of Louisiana rice farming traditions. our family is proud to be the only distillery who handcrafts whiskey and vodka 100% from the rice we sustainably grow on our family farm. Farm-to-Bottle whiskey unlike any other in the world. Our special strain of rice creates shockingly delicious spirits that have some mistaking it for world class bourbon and others loving our vodka.

Savor a delicious vodka cocktail, our small batch whiskey on the rocks, and even start a collection of our single barrel, high proof whiskey found online and at select retailers. And the best part, our rice is a gluten excluded grain. That's right, all our delicious rice spirits are gluten-free. One family, one farm, and one great idea; made by us for your enjoyment. Live your Lifestyle with J.T. Meleck Distillers!

What They Are Saying


Wow! So much better than I thought it would be… one of the more fascinating whiskeys I have tasted, not just this year, but in my career… it’s exciting!


Liquid Gold. Tears of a Unicorn. Shocking great drinking experience that I have ever tried.


This rice whiskey drank at its stated proof and featured more flavor than I would have ever imagined. As I suspected, it was nothing like the Japanese versions I’d tried. J.T. Meleck American Rice Whiskey is kinda-sorta like a blend of Bourbon and Rye. The more I sipped it, the more flavorful it became. I’m curious if American rice whiskey will catch on. If J.T. Meleck is an example of what the category becomes, it’ll be a winner.
