About Us

How the road of life led Jeff (Idlewild Spirits’ creator) into distilling is a long story that is better told in person, but the principles upon which Idlewild was founded are no secret. Just like a business should be, Idlewild Spirits is a passion-born ideology. The perfectionist nature of the founder, Jeff Ruhle, will never be satisfied until it is exactly what he would want when visiting another distillery; high quality and intriguing new-age spirits, killer cocktails that explore all facets of your senses, and as many homemade items as possible (ginger beer, cocktail cherries, sour mix, food, etc). We want both our staff and customers to feel like family and the ambiance is a perfect reflection of acceptance of people at all stages of life coming together. Our staff functions and socializes like a family on holiday and we invite you to be part of that holiday!
