Fall Updates & New Cocktail Kits

Happy Labor Day Weekend! As the seasons begin to change, we're transitioning to fall here at the distillery too - we're making some updates to our patio, adjusting our hours, and we've got fresh cocktail kits for the new season, too!
New Fall Hours
Store Only: Tuesday & Wednesday: 3 - 7 pm
Cocktail Bar & Distillery Store: Thursday: 3 - 9 pm, Friday & Saturday: 3 - 10 pm
Patio Updates & New Cocktail Kits
Our cocktail patio is getting a few updates as we head into fall - we added more lighting, and soon we'll have some patio heaters as well. With these updates, weather permitting, we're hoping to have our patio available for at least the next couple of months or so. We recommend reservations, but walk-ins are OK too if we have space. You can book online or by phone at 847.574.2499 - let us know whether you prefer outside or inside when you book. Our current menu is posted here, and these drinks will be available only through this weekend - new menu next week!

We understand that not everyone is ready to venture out for cocktails, so we have another option for those of you at home - autumnal cocktail kits! Check out the options below, and head to our website to place an order for curbside, contact-free pickup.

Cocktail Kits, Store & Curbside Pickup

Our distillery store offers a wide range of supplies and tools for home cocktailing! Our online store is always being updated with fun mixer options, our current housemade simple syrups and fresh juice offerings, as well as our cocktail kits, which change monthly. All online orders must be picked up at the distillery.

This month's new Cocktail Kits include some end-of-summer options for this week only, as well as our September offerings for the start of fall:

For Labor Day Weekend only:
  • Blueberry Lavender Smash - this cocktail has been extremely popular this summer - North Shore Vodka, fresh blueberries, lemon & lavender make a fruit-forward, floral sipper.
  • Classic Smash - this kit is customizable - you choose the spirit! Comes with mint simple made from fresh mint grown in our distillery garden, fresh lemon juice or lemons to juice at home, and garnishes!
New Kits for September:
  • Chai Mule - a spiced, fizzy twist on the classic cocktail, with either B Vodka or Aquavit - Private Reserve, chai, fresh lemon & ginger beer.
  • Fall Equinox - Sol Chamomile Citrus Vodka, cranberry, brown sugar, fresh lemon & cinnamon make an autumnal sipper.
  • Pinkerton Man - a fall favorite, smooth & layered with Gin No. 11, fresh lemon, rosemary & pear juice.
