Black Hills Dakota Distiller, founded in April 2010, is the first legal distillery in the Black Hills area. We are a startup artisan distillery located outside of Sturgis, just northwest of Rapid City. Our goal is to produce the finest handcrafted spirits possible using South Dakota-grown ingredients. Our spirits are produced on a small batch level, which flows off our still at a rate of gallons per hour not hundreds of gallons per minute. Our hours are 2-6 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
