Retailer Database

Our products are showing up in new places every day. Here is a searchable database of where you should be able to find our spirits for purchase by the bottle.  Please be aware that not all of these stores carry all of our spirits – it’s best to call ahead to avoid disappointment if you’re looking for something in particular.  If you’re in our area, you can visit the distillery as well – our hours and location are below.

Visit our Distillery & Tasting Room


Our distillery store and tasting room are open most days – stop by and try our spirits, or simply pick up a bottle:

  • Tues-Thurs – 12 to 6 pm
  • Fri-Sat – 12 to 9 pm
  • Sun – 12 to 6 pm


In addition, our cocktail bar is open and we serve a range of cocktails:

  • Fridays – 4 to 9 pm
  • Saturdays – 12 to 9 pm
  • Sundays – 12 to 6 pm

We don’t serve food, but you are welcome to bring your own snacks, and we have menus from area restaurants that will deliver.  And, if you know you are coming with a group for cocktails, you can contact us to make a reservation and we’ll hold a table for you – just call us at 847.574.2499 or email us.


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.
