Come join JASC and JETAA members for a tour, tasting and discussion of Chicago’s very own KOVAL Distillery, set on the Northside of Chicago in Ravenswood. Embracing the grain-to-bottle mentality, each step of the spirit-making process is thoughtfully monitoerd: beginning with contracting local farmers to grow the grain, to on-site milling and mashing, to finally distilling, bottling, and packaging. KOVAL has grown to be one of America’s leading small batch, independent spirit manufacturers.
Sample whiskey, gin, vodka and liqueurs while touring the distillery and learning more about the whiskey making process, and what sets KOVAL apart from the competition. The tour will end with a discussion from Fuyuko Kojima, Japanese market manager for KOVAL, who will lend insight into KOVAL’s marketing strategies in Japan and discuss cultural obstacles and challenges. Products will be available for sale during the event with a 10% discount for all attendees.
