My husband and I bought tickets for a distillery tour at Quincy Street Distillery through Living Social. We didn't really know what to expect. We had both been on winery tours before so we expected it to be similar. Quincy Street Distillery is very quaint!...More

I have visited twice and both times I was impressed with the quality of the spirits. Clearly, there is great care and passion applied in the distilling process which manifests itself in the final product.

Great cocktails. Different from mainstream bars. Bartenders are usually enjoyable to talk with. Service can be slow.

Our friends live in Berwyn so we thought this would be a fun thing to do close to home. Tiny little distillery, but size does not matter here. Derek, the owner, gives a great tour which covers the history and making of whiskey, among other...More

Interest craft spirits in the heart of the town designed by Olmsted. Distilled on premises. Cocktails present the perfect mix of history and new world. Right off the BNSF Riverside stop.

Stopped in for a quiet drink on nye. Small bar area but is very cozy. Everything was great. The drinks. Atmosphere. Selection of drinks. All great... but the service was slow. Bar tenders took an age to mix our drinks. Will be going back!

About an hour tour with the very knowledgeable Owner and bumped into the head Distiller multiple time during the tour. Very small operation in a couple of small rooms. The tasting room bar is as big as the rest of the distillery. Lot's of fun...More
