About the Distiller:
Quincy Street Distillery creates historically inspired spirits based on classic and original formulas which result in unique expressions of taste.
The distillery operates in a historic storefront in the very heart of beautiful Riverside, Illinois, one of the first planned suburban communities in the United States. Designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead, the landscaping mastermind behind New York City’s Central Park, Riverside was created as an idyllic mix of nature and culture, urban and rural. Its meandering streets hugged the wooded banks of the Desplaines River, kept safe and bright at night by state-of-the-art gaslamps. By the time it was incorporated in 1875, the Village of Riverside was a perfect refuge from the bustle and clamour of nearby Chicago, a commuter’s paradise where busy industrialists could walk from the train station by the broad village commons to homes designed by Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright.
This heritage of craftsmanship and community still runs strong in Riverside (now a National Historic Landmark); our immediate neighbors include the renowned Higgins glass studio and a vibrant community art center. Quincy Street Distillery honors this legacy with meticulously crafted small-batch spirits that balance the creative with the classic, as well as through our commitment to using the finest regional ingredients, and collaborating with other local artisans. We invite you to responsibly enjoy our marvelous concoctions.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
