Upcoming Events @ the Tasting Room

Hands On Cocktail Class
Saturday, March 8th and April 12th - 5 to 6:30 pm
Come enjoy this great, hands-on class where you'll be guided through making 3 cocktails and then you'll be creating one of your own! Class is $25 and includes light snacks - email us to sign up. The first class is full, so we added a 2nd date!
P.S. - This means we'll be closed to other visitors on Sat 3/8 from 5 to 6:30 pm for the class.

St. Paddy's Day Celebration
Saturday, March 15th - 12 to 9 pm
For the third year in a row, we'll be pulling a sample of our single malt whiskey and offering it for sale (sorry, by the glass only - it's still not a retail item yet!), and sharing a bit of our Poitin (Irish-style moonshine) as well. Stop by if you're in the area that day!

On Our Radar
Sat 4/26 - A Spring Cocktail Party
Sat 5/10 - Our 1st Annual Artisan Producer Festival

Stay tuned for details on the above events, the Tasting Room re-opening on Sundays at the end of May, and our patio re-opening as well - as soon as we get rid of this snow!


You can find our online event calendar here, we've got events all over Chicago in the coming month.
