Digital distillery passport encourages thirst for adventure

November 8, 2021

The Iowa Tourism Office announced the launch of the Iowa Distillery digital passport today which provides a free digital mobile roadmap to distilleries statewide. The new offering joins existing digital passports for state parks, scenic byways, wineries, breweries and farm experiences. All programs provide curated discounts and deals for passport users.

“We’re delighted to add distilleries to our family of passports,” said Amy Zeigler, state tourism manager for the Iowa Tourism Office. “It’s an additional way to create awareness for Iowa’s distilleries while encouraging people to visit the locations, unlock deals and earn prizes.”

To participate, users sign up to receive a free digital passport to their mobile device. Upon visiting participating locations, patrons may check in using a unique four-digit pin code available onsite and present their passport to distillery staff to redeem available discounts. The first 100 participants that check-in at six participating distilleries will win a pair of Iowa rocks glasses. (Prizes are limited, and the contest will stop once all prizes have been redeemed.)
