Our products are showing up in new places every day – here’s an interactive map of our retail partners across the Midwest (and a few beyond). Not every store carries every one of our spirits, so we suggest you call ahead if you’re looking for something specific! If you’re in our area, you can visit the distillery as well – our hours and location are below (scroll on down).
Unfortunately, FedEx and UPS have changed their policies, and state laws continue to change – so we’ve just updated the list of retailers who can ship our spirits to you. Here are links to the retailers that sell our product online and can ship to some U.S. states (contact them for details):
- Binny’s Beverage Depot (Illinois, most products)
In Fine Spirits (Illinois, most products)
- The Jug Shop (California, most products)
- K & L Wines (California, both gins and aquavit)
- Ludwig’s Fine Wines & Spirits (California, a few products)
- Mission Wine & Spirits (California, most products)
- West Lakeview Liquors (Illinois, most products)
- Wine & Cheese Place (Missouri, most products)
In addition, some of the other retailers carrying our products can take orders by phone and can ship them for you.

2016 TASTING ROOM & DISTILLERY STORE HOURS
We are CLOSED until at least May 5, and potentially May 12, while we move to our new location. Stay tuned for updates on our hours once we are settled in our new spot!
Please note – we are moving in April 2016, so we will not be offering any distillery tours at our current location after Saturday, February 27, 2016 as we prepare for our move. Stay tuned for the tour schedule once we are open in our new location.
Want to meet Ethel the Still and the rest of the cast of characters that help us make our spirits? Want to learn more about the distilling process? Then our distillery tour is for you. We offer our tours on Saturdays at 3 pm, or for groups of 8 or more at other times/days by appointment. Tours cost $10 per person, which includes a tasting of spirits, and they typically last 60-90 minutes, depending on the number of questions the group asks. Unlike the tours offered at many other places, at least one of our founders will lead part of your tour, so you’ll have a chance to ask questions and hear from at least one of the people who started our little distillery. We recommend reservations, as our tour group size is limited. Call us at 847.574.2499 or email us to reserve your spot. If you’re nearby, feel free to stop by on a Saturday at 3 pm and see if we have openings – we sometimes do!
We host a variety of private events, whether for birthday parties, showers, team building events or just good times with friends and neighbors. If you have a group of 8 or more, and want to arrange your own cocktail party, distillery tour, spirits discussion, or any other event, just get in touch with Sonja via our contact form or email us.
Here are a few pictures of what you’ll find here, and a highlight or two from our distillery tours.
