Indulge in Chicago's uniquely crafted spirits on this all-inclusive distillery tour.

Your Prohibition-Era expert will help you relive the trials and triumphs of the men and women who made, and continue to make, Chicago one of the country's best destinations for fine liquors!

Want to learn about the effect Prohibition laws had on Chicago and how certain gangs developed to facilitate the transport of illegal hooch? Step on your barrel bus through the speakeasy-style, hidden vertical door and start your one-of-a-kind Chicago Distillery Tour. As you're taken from distillery to distillery in this jinty, your guide will provide entertaining and educational insights into the beginning of Chicago's liquor industry during the 1800's. What better way to visit local craft distilleries and sample their wares, than in a Prohibition-Era styled Bus.

You'll sample craft spirits at each of the three distilleries. Enjoy whiskey, gin, apple-brandy, vodka, and more, as you try approximately 9-12, locally crafted spirits throughout the tour. On your production facility tour, you'll learn the step-by-step procedures of distilling and the science behind the art. Stop at large and small facilities so you can get a sense of what it was like to step into a distillery before the 18th Amendment made booze illegal.

Upgrade your DeLorean to a barrel bus and travel back in time!
