  • We had a very interesting visit. I learned more about distilling than I thought possible. There was also a little myth busting about vodka. The tasting was fun with a very wide variety of samples. 
  • This is such a cool place to visit! You will get an awesome tour by the owner, Derek, who is obviously VERY passionate about his business. You'll learn some cool facts and history about distilling in ...  read more »
  • This was awesome! Definitely learned a lot about distilling alcohol and the history behind it. And for the tasting part we taste tested 12 different spirits and a history behind each. The attached bar...  read more »
  • Perfect little distillery. Small and friendly, the atmosphere here is wonderful. The variety of drinks distilled and aged in house is amazing. I'd highly recommend taking the tour offered on weekends. Derrick Mancini, owner and Distiller, is extremely knowledgeable and clearly loves his work. Great bar as well serving delicious cocktails.
  • FAR more than a 'liquor store'. The tour was not only informative to their methods and philosophy, but also packed with history, insightful opinion, and humorous facts. Very enjoyable and the spirits (almost all of them) are very good. Neat place (very speakeasy 'esk), the Riverside area is quaint. Make sure you ask the good doctor about his past and current work!
  • Had a good time, but the service was a bit slow. The bartender had to look at the menu because he didn't have half of the drinks memorized, not his fault. The menu is overwhelming even to the average customer, there is probably 5 pages of cocktails(3 too many IMO). Bottom line the cocktails are delicious but they need to streamline their process by trimming the menu or hiring another bartender.
  • This is a great tour to take! Well worth the time learning about the long history that Illinois has with the whiskey trade in the USA. The owner makes the tour easy to understand and the facility is genuine. You'll come away with a feeling that Derrick - the owner, will continue successfully in this business because he is so knowledgeable in this craft. The samples at the end of the tour are great too!
  • They host a very informative and entertaining tour on the distilling process and history of whiskey in Illinois and the United States. This is followed up with a tasting of their goods, which I have to say are fantastic. Bring a friend, and enjoy this hidden gem.
