A nice distillery operation with live-music in the back. Very interesting drinks. No food, but the pop corn prevents an empty stomach. Fun and a good neighborhood hangout.

Driving through Lake Zurich and decided after passing the business we should stop. Ron the bar tender was very informative. We enjoyed a tasting of the spirits after which we enjoyed a Hibiscus Smash which was very good. We will be back .
