Distillery Insurance for
Craft Distillers

At Whalen Insurance, we believe in empowering distillers to create quality spirits with confidence. To accomplish our mission, we provide custom distillery insurance solutions that meet your unique needs.


As specialists in distillery insurance, we work with our clients to develop the ideal plan. Our coverage includes property, liquor liability, equipment, workers’ compensation, and more. We deliver more than insurance for your craft distillery. We deliver peace of mind.


Diverse Experience

Responsible for insuring over 50 locations nationwide, we have in-depth experience with a wide range of clients.

Uncompromising Safety

Our safety specialists provide compliance inspections and expert-level guidance to keep your equipment and personnel safe.

Dedicated Service

We pride ourselves on being the one-stop-shop for brewery and distillery inspections, advice, and coverage.

Peace of Mind

Our ultimate goal is to help craft distillers produce high-quality beverages with confidence.


Since the mid-1980s, Whalen Insurance has been the trusted name to know for breweries and distilleries alike. Many insurance companies are discontinuing their distillery insurance programs after facing recent losses. The team at Whalen Insurance continues to provide comprehensive insurance coverage with confidence.

In addition to our custom insurance offerings, we have recently partnered with a leading company that features a top-tier financial rating. In turn, we are able to provide exceptional coverage at best-in-class rates.

Buying you some time

While conducting day-to-day operations, most small business owners, brewers, and craft distillery owners simply don’t have time to learn the nuances of their insurance program. By examining your existing coverage, conducting safety evaluations, and suggesting custom-tailored insurance plans for your distillery, we keep you focused on the core of your business: producing exceptional spirits.

If you’re ready to partner with an insurance provider who has your best interests at heart, get in touch with our dedicated Whalen Insurance team today.

You have my personal quality guarantee.

Warm wishes,
