During my brother's last full day in Chicago (he was in town for the holidays), we visited the Chicago Distilling Company for a tour of their facilities. We have a couple of distilleries in and around Chicago and I've had a chance to visit a few, but this is the first time I had an opportunity to go to this nearby distillery. This is a friendly and inviting place that welcomes you as soon as you come in the door. They only feature their creations, which includes cocktails on tap and "booze in a can cocktails". The tour was well done. The review of how these spirits were made was factual and presented with a nice human touch (you learn how the owners decided to become distillers)...and it was obvious that the master distiller really loved what he was doing. They make gin, vodka, and a variety of whiskeys and even aged in a whiskey barrel maple syrup. We sampled several whiskies including their single malt, bourbon, rye and whisky made using grains typically used for beer. Of all the spirits, I found the gin the very best. This gin would make a great gin and tonic or martini. It also happens to be their best selling spirit. I brought home a 4 pack of their "Chicago Mule in a can cocktail" for my lovely wife. I'm waiting for her taste testing review now. I can highly recommend that you visit the Chicago Distilling Company and go on one of their tours ($10/person). You'll be glad you did.
Great tasting room, amazing cocktails and the spirits really shine which is great because they are making them right there! Take the tour, learn all about distilling in Chicago and how they are making one of the best gins and ryes I have ever had! Seriously if you like gin, bourbon or rye, give them some time! You will not regret it!
