  • Situated in a historic tobacco building, there's a great feel while enjoying a cocktail...or a brew from the shared bar area with Wacker Brewing! Be sure to go on the distillery tour too. Learned about the building, where their name comes from, and of course a tasting! We were able to try all their products and they weren't shy on the pours either! We ended up sitting in the bar area, playing darts with friends for a few hours. Very fun place, be sure to stop!
  • What a great experience... Read the reviews before hitting up this place and wasn't disappointed... The tour guide, Lucas is a riot and had a ton information about the city, building and the whiskey... He suggested an awesome restaurant "horse inn"... What another hidden gem...
  • Yesterday my wife and I decided to visit Thistle Finch for the first time. We started our visit with a tour with Lucas as our guide. He was great, well informed and actually enjoyed his job! After sampling all they had to offer we purchased a bottle to take to go. Before leaving we got two cocktails from the bar and food from Wacker Brewery. The food was good, but the cocktails were just ok. Next time we go I think I would just do beer instead from Wacker. Overall we would visit again.
  • I loved the experience here! Service was superb and the tasters were flavorful. They do tours on Saturdays and Sundays. The distillery and brewery are separate entities in the same building
  • Really enjoyable time. Great atmosphere, and great service. The flavors on the whiskey, vodka and the gin were outstanding.
