Weekend Photos: North Shore Distillery Tour and Tasting Room
You may not frequently find yourself in the far North Shore burg of Lake Bluff on Friday evenings, but perhaps you just haven’t had a reason. Now you do: On Friday, North Shore Distillery led its inaugural facility tour and opened its tasting room to the public for the very first time. Our photographer was there to get the behind-the-scenes lowdown on the art of spirit making and to meet Ethel—nope, not the dog; the copper still—in person. Tours run Fridays at 6 p.m., Saturdays at 2 and 4 p.m., and cost $10, which includes five samples—or just belly up to the bar in the tasting room (open Fridays 4 to 8 p.m., Saturdays 1 to 6 p.m.) and drink your education. But first, browse our photos below.
