Tour was super casual but personal. It was really nice to hear the story of how the distillery got started. Had a really great local flair. Drinks were mixed well and samples of brandy were offered.
I love your products and the story about the distillery. Great tour.
It was a fun thing to do with my parents while they were in town. They've been coming to visit me for some 13 years so always looking for something new to do. Also fun to check out places previously unknown in my neighborhood. Great cocktails! Tour isn't anything overwhelming-- not too long, interesting and cool to learn about a local company.
Lee was passionate and very knowledgeable! Great new experience!
Great tour with a great host and great drinks afterwards !
My sister, friends and I went here for my birthday and had a blast. Lee and Mark did such a good job presenting and making us feel at home. Very cool space and cocktails are top notch. I am not a brandy drinker but I am now!!!!!
Staff was very knowledgeable and the visit was simply put, wonderful.
Leigh gave a very informative and entertaining tour! We also enjoyed having a cocktail beforehand and tasting flights of brandy afterward. Very enjoyable!
we had the best time and it was a pleasure meeting mr. and mrs. solberg. we wish you all the best and we will definitely be back.
Very interesting and different. I would have liked to hear more about the process rather than the family story (still keep some of that though!)
It was both fun and interesting. Loved hearing all the back stories of how it came to be. Enjoyed a few cocktails with friends at the bar. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon! Have already recommended the tour to others.
Tour was fun, but nothing special, nor were the brandies. Cocktails were excellent.
Excellent tour and drinks!
Delicious cocktails and fun afternoon
Rhine Hall Distillery was everything I hoped it would be and more. As a brandy lover, I felt like a little kid in a candy store. The drinks were amazing, the staff was friendly, and the tour was incredibly informative. I'll definitely be going back next time I visit Chicago.

Friendly tour guide - Lee
Very friendly staff! Your bartenders were so nice they even gave us a recipe to one of the drinks for us to try at home. Great family owned place.
Brandy was delicious tour guide very informative
Great tour, great employees, and delicious brandy! We will definitely be back!
Great people, great Brandy!
Tour seemed a bit overpriced for the experience and small sample at the end. The tour guide also seemed less than thrilled to answer questions at the end.
We felt the tour was the perfect length and was very informative.
We took my dad to Rhine Hall for his birthday. I'd never heard of Rhine Hall before searching for distilleries in Chicago. We were skeptical because of the location, but it was AWESOME. The woman who did the tour was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, which made the tour one of the best I've ever be on. The mixed drinks were wonderful! In total we had 6 different drinks and each one was fabulous. If you're on the fence about Rhine Hall, go for it! You won't regret it.
