    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!"
