Welcome to North Shore Distillery
You have arrived at the virtual home for the first boutique distillery in the Chicago area (and in Illinois). Started in 2004 and selling bottles since 2005, we produce a range of inspired and unique spirits for your enjoyment.
Our award winning, small-batch, handmade products are designed for the true spirit connoisseur, using only the finest ingredients. Thanks for visiting - we hope you come back often! And, come see us in person, too!
Thurs 3/13 - Join us at the Chicago Botanic Gardens from 6 to 8 pm for Orchids & Spirits, an event featuring local spirit tastings and access to their new Orchid Show.
- Our latest tasting room newsletter came out March 5th with spring cocktails and the scoop on some fun events here at the distillery. The latest email newsletter came out February 19 with great events in and out of town, winter cocktail recipes and more.
- Our first-ever Box Set is out! It's called the "History of Gin" and includes four different styles of gin, a booklet on gin's history and evolution, and a handmade wooden box. Great for that gin lover or spirits nerd in your life! Available only at the distillery.
Fri 3/14 - We'll be at the annual Localicious Party from 7 to 9:30 pm. Come out and celebrate great local food and drinks!
