Koval Distillery, established in 2008, is located in the North End of Chicago. They are a 100% grain-to-bottle operation that sources their grains from an organic co-op in the Midwest. Their bourbon mash-bill consists of two grains: corn and millet. This is aged less than four years in 30-gallon, new charred barrels. All Koval's whiskeys are bottled as single-barrel so slight variations will occur.

Tasting Notes

"Sweet vanilla notes are found along with some light char smoke and toasted grains. Not sure you would know that millet was used as the secondary grain, but you know that it isn't rye or barley. The mid-palate is soft and sweet and with finish focusing on barrel spices and char smoke."
