This was more of a tasting than a tour, but still informative and interesting. This is a good tour for those that don't want to or can't walk alot since you spend almost the entire time standing on a platform. Our tour guide was engaging and funny. There is a gift shop and full service bar attached to the distillery. Plenty of street parking. 4 stars because we didn't get appetizers, only whiskey.

I would rate it higher but the special mentioned breads and spreads, There wasn't any food served to my knowledge with the tour and if so it was never mentioned. There is a good bit of liquor being served so I think its important to offset that with a bit of food.

About Visit the Famous Koval Distillery

Robert Birnecker and Sonat Birnecker-Hart are devoted to the art of distilling. For Robert, it’s a family tradition: he still treasures memories of his grandparents’ award-winning Austrian distillery, where he often helped out as a child. A graduate of Oxford and the University of London, Robert's wife, Sonat, gave up a tenured academic position to pursue the couple’s dream of making their own spirits from scratch. Today, Robert and Sonat’s award-winning Koval Distillery is the first to open in Chicago’s city limits since Prohibition. There, they blend classic, mainstream techniques with contemporary, indie methods, ensuring quality by using only certified organic and kosher ingredients grown in the Midwest.

Using a Kothe potstill custom-made and hand-built in Germany, the husband-and-wife team produces small-batch spirits, including five original white whiskeys made from rye, oat, wheat, millet, and spelt mash.These spirits have won multiple local and national awards, from Whisky Magazine’s 100 Greatest Distilleries to Visit to the Chicago Reader’s Best Local Distillery.
