Pour: Rye Chicago and Midwest Wheat

Koval Distillery captivates with their grain and fruit flavors

Koval's Midwest Wheat Grain Spirits

Koval Distillery in Ravenswood bills itself as Chicago’s first boutique kosher and organic distillery. I guess that distinguishes it from the guys in the bathtub gin business a while back. The young owners are husband-and-wife team Sonat and Robert Birnecker, the latter from an Austrian family of distillers. I’ve tried two of Koval’s five grain spirits, Rye Chicago and Midwest Wheat (each $39), and while clear like vodka, their grain and fruit flavors captivate. What would Capone have thought?
