We came here with a Groupon with another couple who have background in science and history. We enjoyed the tour very much. Not much walking, but standing time could be over 1 hour. If you need a seat, it can be arranged. We were planning on a 90 min tour, and we ended up staying for 2.5 hours. We probably... More

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 with 12 samples at the end, and a free glass with a Groupon.

Very thorough tour with the best tasting room we've ever visited, 12 samples. The owner (I don't remember his name) shows his knowledge and his passion for Illinois distilling and its history.

We had a very interesting visit. I learned more about distilling than I thought possible. There was also a little myth busting about vodka. The tasting was fun with a very wide variety of samples.

This is such a cool place to visit! You will get an awesome tour by the owner, Derek, who is obviously VERY passionate about his business. You'll learn some cool facts and history about distilling in IL and the US. Afterwards, you get to taste a sampling of all the spirits they make. Coby is also a wonderful hostess and... More

This was awesome! Definitely learned a lot about distilling alcohol and the history behind it. And for the tasting part we taste tested 12 different spirits and a history behind each. The attached bar is very cozy and the bartender was a sweetheart

Derrick is the owner/distiller at Quincy Street Distillery. It is a small batch producer of "old time" whiskey and other spirits. If you take the tour, Derrick will take you into the back rooms and explain all about the whiskey producing business and bits of history about whiskey in the US. Very informative. Then you come out into the bar... More

I really did not know what to expect when my dad said he bought us tour tickets. Turns out this was a very cool experience. Learned a lot about distilling and it history. Not to mention all the federal and state laws. Also, some local history and how it relates to some of their creations. The owner gave us the... More
