Established in 2008, Koval produces organic whiskey, liqueurs and specialty spirits in Chicago's first distillery since the mid-1800s. After numerous international awards and Robert at the helm of consulting for the burgeoning craft industry, Koval has grown to be one of America's leading small batch, independent spirit manufacturers. The name Koval means "blacksmith," in numerous Eastern European languages, but the word in Yiddish also refers to a "black sheep" or someone who forges ahead or does something new or out of the ordinary. All of Koval's whiskies are "single barrel" expressions. All Koval spirits can be traced back to their barrel, and even the specific shipments of raw materials that come from our organic farmers.
