In Distillery News, NSD Policies

Updated February 28, 2022

As the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve, we are continuing to adapt our practices and policies. Starting Monday, February 28, the Governor of Illinois has lifted the mask mandate for most public places. As a result, we no longer require customers or employees to wear facial coverings. Those who are not fully vaccinated and boosted are still encouraged to mask up, and guests and members of our team who prefer to wear masks are welcome to do so.

As always, our primary focus is keeping us all safe, so we are focused on following the evolving guidance put out by the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the CDC.

Planning Your Visit

There are not currently any restrictions on maximum group size or table spacing, but we have kept most of our tables spaced out from each other. We are continuing to accept reservations, but we do not require them and walk-ins are welcome.

If you, or anyone in your group, is not feeling 100%, and especially if you have any COVID-19 like symptoms, please stay home. We have many other ways for you to enjoy great drinks, such as with our bottles and cocktail kits to go.

Menus and Payments

We have returned to our longer, paper menus, but we also post our menu on our website. We are offering contactless payment options to the greatest extent possible, to minimize the transfer of cards, pens and paper between our guests and our staff. We accept mobile payments, and we still accept cash as well for those who prefer to pay in cash.

Questions, Concerns, Comments

We are all about hospitality and wanting our guests to feel welcome and safe while having a great experience with us. If you have any questions or concerns about what we are doing, or want to discuss anything specific as you contemplate a visit, please get in touch with us by electronic note or phone (847.574.2499).

If you want to have a great cocktail, but do not want to venture out, we totally understand – we have bottles of our spirits and cocktail kits available for curbside pickup. Want something you don’t see as a kit? Give us a call or send a note, and we’ll see if we can put something special together for you.
