Established in 2008, KOVAL produces organic whiskey, liqueurs and specialty spirits in Chicago's first distillery since the mid-1800s. Founders Robert and Sonat Birnecker, chose to leave their academic careers to bring the distilling traditions of Robert’s Austrian family to America. In making this decision, they vowed to make organic spirits from scratch (avoiding the common industry practice of purchasing and bottling pre-made spirits) and to change the way people understand whiskey by creating a new, signature style - using only the “heart” cut of the distillate - affording a brighter, cleaner take on whiskey.
Making outstanding spirits and bottling them in a great-looking package wasn’t enough for CH Distillery. They figured you’d want to tour their distillery and learn a little about the science of making alcohol. But who wants just a tiny pour of a warm sample after the tour? So, they built a cocktail bar in their distillery. Where you can enjoy their spirits the right way – on the rocks, shaken and icy cold, or in a delicious, original CH cocktail. And because people get hungry when they drink, they hired acclaimed chefs to make great food and bar snacks that pair perfectly with their spirits. Have a bite before dinner, or make a meal from their menu. Either way, stay a while and enjoy Chicago’s only distillery cocktail bar!
