Established in 2008, Koval produces organic whiskey, liqueurs and specialty spirits in Chicago’s first distillery since the mid-1800s. Founders Robert and Sonat Birnecker chose to leave their academic careers to bring the distilling traditions of Robert’s Austrian family to America.
Embracing the grain-to-bottle mentality, each step of the spirit-making process is thoughtfully monitored: beginning with contracting local farmers to grow the grain, to on-site milling and mashing, to finally distilling, bottling, and packaging.
After numerous international awards and Robert at the helm of consulting for the burgeoning craft industry, Koval has grown to be one of America’s leading small batch, independent spirit manufacturers.
Tasting Notes: Crafted with the same prized recipe as the dry gin, Koval Barreled Gin adds a new level of citrus and spice with a light butterscotch sweetness that comes from its maturation.
Fans of Koval Dry Gin will taste a similarly crisp spirit with flavours of rose hip, juniper, angelica root, and coriander, but will appreciate a new level of depth and oak from the spirit’s time resting in a Koval Whiskey barrel.
