Wet Mill & Distillery

Located on the east bank of the Illinois River, Pekin has produced ethanol and many of its co-products since 1981.

The Pekin Wet Mill and Distillery manufactures alcohol for food, beverage, disinfectants, protein products for feed and food, CO2 for beverage and industrial processing, pharmaceutical-grade alcohol, and low carbon renewable fuel for transportation. The production facility was originally built in the early 1900’s and added the distillery in 1981. Corn is received by truck and rail from Illinois and Iowa elevators and farmers. Located on the Illinois River, many of the products are shipped by barge to US and international markets and by truck and railcar to local and other domestic markets.
