Product description

Chicago is probably best known for its brewery scene, but they also have some great distilleries including KOVAL, which is Chicago’s first new distillery since Prohibition. It was founded by husband and wife team Drs. Robert Birnecker and Sonat Birnecker Hart in 2008.

Everything KOVAL makes is organic and grain to bottle using non-GMO yeast and enzymes. They make gin, a variety of liqueurs, and whiskies including an Oat whiskey and a Millet whiskey.

This single barrel Rye Whiskey picked by our team clocks in at 55% ABV and is distilled from a 100% Rye mash, which is very uncommon and – according to the late Dave Pickerell – very difficult

Appearance: In the glass, this Whiskey presents as a dark copper.

Nose: You’re greeted with notes of maple syrup and pumpernickel, followed by subtle notes of rye spice. 

Palate: For a Rye whiskey this is incredibly sweet and maple forward with lots of pine on the mid palate. The dill pickle and rye spice notes, while present, are not overpowering and are on the back of the palate and finish versus being on the front palate.


This is a great bottle for a Bourbon drinker looking to try something a little different and outside their comfort zone!
