Let the ride take you to a unique behind-the-scenes tour of a Lake County, Illinois glassmaker, brewery and distillery. Our morning starts with a visit to the studio of award-winning glassmaker, Peter Patterson who provides a demonstration of his techniques and everyone goes home with one of his very own shot glasses. Lunch is at Mickey Finn's Brewery on Main Street Libertyville followed by a tour of Illinois' first craft distillery since Prohibition - North Shore Distillery. We take a tour of the craft room, meet the still – Ethel - and learn of the inspiration behind their unique creations - gin, vodka absinth and more. Each tour includes a tasting of cocktails created from their spirits. Registration fee includes demo/tours/tasting, lunch and round-trip mini-motorcoach transportation.
