    Science of Alcohol Tour

    She BLINDED me, with SCIence! Don’t pretend like you don’t know the song. Ever wonder why Thomas Dolby said “science” instead of “alcohol”? Maybe because alcohol IS science, by some transitive property. But enough about one-hit wonders. Let’s talk liquor. Get ready to learn all about how CH makes Vodka, Gin and lots of other spirits from locally-grown grains. This tour includes “The Tradition”, a special take on the classic Russian way to drink vodka: ice cold CH Vodka, with rye bread and pickles. Time Out Chicago included The Tradition on their list of "The 100 Best Things We Ate and Drank" (www.chdistillery.com/press) and it's the perfect way to wrap up the tour of this beautiful Vodka distillery! Just remember Newton’s Third Law of Motion, paraphrased as “drink responsibly!”
