Frequently Asked Questions:

Where can I purchase your whiskey?

Currently we can be found in numerous locations throughout Illinois and the Chicagoland area, including Binny's, Hy-Vee, Whole Foods, Marianos's, The Royal Wren, Schnuck's, Sav Way and many more including a number of independent liquor stores, bars and restaurants. The list is growing every day but if you don't see us in your favorite establishment, please ASK FOR US BY NAME as this will help pull us into that market.

I am a licensed IL liquor establishment, how can I carry your products?

Your best bet is to contact our IL distributor: Heritage Wine Cellars @ 847-965-3625 and ask to carry our products. Otherwise, contact us directly and we will help you get in touch with the appropriate folks.

Do you sell direct or online?

Illinois law allows us the limited ability to sell direct if you come to our distillery in person. If you are lucky enough to live in certain states, Ezra's or Binny's can sell and ship to you through their online store.  

Can I come tour your distillery?

Absolutely! We are open to the public Friday-Sunday. Come check out our huge new Visitor’s Center!  If you have a larger group and would like to book a private tour of our distillery please give us a call at 844-4-WHISKEY.

What can I expect if I visit?

Expect a great time!  See our production facility, sample our products in our brand new visitor’s center, or have a drink on our flagstone cocktail patio and gaze out on the unending fields of corn, wheat and rye we are growing for your enjoyment! Tours & Tastings cost $10/person for those over 21 (includes a distillery tour, 3 sample pours, and a free souvenir shot glass). Supervised guests under 21 are invited to take the tour only at no charge. Feel free to bring something to munch too! Allow approx. 45 minutes - 1 hr. 

Can I book my wedding/meeting/party there?

YES! (Well, maybe…) Our new 4,200 sq. ft. Visitors Center is currently accepting 2019 reservations for private rental Mondays-Thursdays days/nights (capacity up to approx. 100+/). Our historic tasting room is available 7 days/nights a week (capacity approx. 20). We also have a well-equipped boardroom (up to 12) for your next important meeting. Rentals include bartending service. Cocktails and tours may be purchased a la carte. Catered meals are welcomed. Please call for details & pricing/availability.

Do you have anything besides whiskey?

Sure we do! Are you a vodka fan? We make our own, award winning 100% corn vodka. We also sell a variety of whiskey and vodka cocktails and provide choices for the non-drinker as well. If you're in the need for logo wear, hats, glassware, recipes, etc. we can hook you up with gifts too! (Pssst...last fall we started making our own whiskey-barrel scented soy candles as well. We can't make them fast enough!)
