Had a great time there. Only downside we’re the taste portions. It wasn’t nearly enough to have a real tasting of the spirits and taste all of the different aspects of the liquor being described to us. Otherwise, is was a really good time. It’s unfortunate we didn’t get our souvenir glass, but the 15% discount was nice.

A short tour and not as good as others I have been on (Two Brothers' tour is free, much more comprehensive and you get a flight of beer complimentary). So in comparison, I would not recommend. Important to note that the souvenir is a plain shot glass w/koval logo - not the glassware pictured.

We did not get to see the stills where it's all made, just a showroom/event space where they have barrels and distilling equipment they used to use. Great information and tastings, but it was disappointing that we did not get to see where the magic happens.

I would consider this more of a class than a tour. With that being said, the spirits were tasty and the guide was well informed. I think easily worth the price of admission, only could be better if there was the ability to serve koval mixed drinks nearby.

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.
