The Kosher Gin
is the first small batch distillery in Chicago
since the dark days of the prohibition era, and one of the leading craft distilleries in the US.
It was founded in 2008
and Sonat Birnecker
who abandoned their academic careers to follow their hearts. Growing up, Robert lived near Salzburg, Austria,
and was immersed in a culture of small batch distilling, so perhaps this is destiny. For those of us who love great spirits, it is just good luck for us!
The distillery supports sustainable agriculture and is certified as both organic and kosher
—there’ll be no outsourcing for these kids. In eight short years
they have expanded their miracle-working to … geez, just about everything from Gin, to Whiskey, to Liqueurs, and a bunch of other fiddly things, all of them professionally crafted and tasty-good. In fact, they are rated as one of the top ten small-batch distilleries in the US.
With their approach they declared their grain-to-bottle
mentality which means that every step of the production is carefully planned and exists only because it is the only acceptable way to do the things as they want them to be.
The Koval Gin
is made from the grain base of their award winning Whisky, and of course the addition of juniper, grains of paradise, rose hip, angelica root and coriander. This crisp Gin has a slightly higher
content of alcohol which gives an even bigger kick of taste… Sweet!
