Sampling Small-Batch Premium Spirits at Great Lakes Distillery
Touring the Great Lakes Distillery in Milwaukee is a fun and worthwhile experience. The distillery specializes in small-batch premium spirits, often incorporating local ingredients. You can tour the distillery, enjoy a structured sampling in the tasting room or head to their speakeasy-inspired bar for a classic cocktail made with Great Lakes Distillery spirits. Some of their products include a Rehorst Vodka made with Wisconsin-grown wheat; a Rehorst Citrus & Honey Rum made with real lemons and local honey; a smooth Rehorst Gin containing nine botanicals and the unique ingredients of sweet basil and Wisconsin ginseng; a dry Roaring Dan’s Rum made with grade “A” sugar cane molasses and pure Wisconsin maple syrup; a Kinnickinnic Whiskey combining Straight Bourbon sourced from down south and the distillery's own Malt Whiskey and Rye Whiskey; and a pleasant Amerique 1912 Absinthe Verte incorporating a traditional recipe of anise, grande wormwood and fennel.
