KOVAL Distillery Tastings at Timothy's Hutch

From Friday, January 3, 2020 to Thursday, December 31, 2020 January 3, 2020 December 31, 2020 The Blackstone

Our KOVAL tastings are back for ALL of 2020. Cheers!

Re-opened on Chicago's Cultural Mile in 2008, The Blackstone celebrates its history with a clever and contemporary attitude. Established in 2008, KOVAL is Chicago's first distillery since Prohibition and one of America’s leading small batch, independent spirit manufacturers. The Blackstone and KOVAL came together to create a hand-selected Bourbon for hotel - available at Timothy's Hutch.

Come celebrate these two Chicago icons by meeting the KOVAL team on every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 4 - 7 PM at Timothy's Hutch.

Please note that only complimentary tastings will be available. Timothy's Hutch is no longer an operating bar but guests can visit Mercat a la Planxa and ask for an Old Fashioned made with KOVAL Distillery Bourbon - always available for purchase during operating hours of the restaurant. Guests are allowed to bring their cocktails back down to the lobby level.
