Now Open: Chicago Distilling Co. in Logan Square
Three Logan Square locals are getting into the distilling game. The team is made up of brothers Vic and Jay DiPrizio, along with Jay's wife, Noelle, whose family used to be in the moonshine business. A far cry from bathtub gin, this sleek new distillery will produce a wide array of spirits. Chicago Distilling Co. is starting with vodka and white whiskey, but has big plans for gin, barrel-aged whiskey and amaro. The newly christened space, which opened Saturday, joins a slew of businesses popping up on Milwaukee Avenue, including The Radler and a new bar from the Scofflaw team called Slippery Slope. Since Chicago Distilling Co. does not serve food, Noelle said it is the perfect place to stop in for a drink before The Radler or while waiting for a table to open up at Revolution. One thing is certain, the large space - which also houses a small retail area - is a haven for the burgeoning local liquor movement.
