What an amazing tour, I learned so much and found a place that I will take my family/friends when they visit me in Chicago. It was fascinating to learn the rich history of this company and the Cranberry Gin is my absolute FAVORITE!

The tour host/guide was great and spirits we tasted were good, but it felt very overpriced for the experience. - Tour took a place where it's not being actively used for distilling. It felt more like a small warehouse with some barrels aging + an inactive distilling machine. - Staff didn't (forgot?) give the souvenir glasses for any guests until we asked for it. A lot of people made purchases and still didn't get them. - Lastly, very little portion for tasting itself. Three different types to taste total, and all combined would've been one shot-glass full.

About 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.
