Almost every high-end vodka claims to be a "small batch" vodka. How is this possible when you see them on every shelf, in every store in the country and on the shelves of many stores overseas? Small is obviously a relative term. The daily production capacity of most of these "small batch" imports is comparable to our distillery's yearly capacity. Our small batch production is actually that. But enough about the others. North Shore Vodka is elegant and refined. Made from distilled midwestern grain, our vodka has a smooth, refreshing taste with a pleasant clean finish. Through our proprietary process, and our focus on the quality of each and every batch, our master distiller ensures that our vodka has the individual character and quality required to be enjoyed on its own or in your favorite martini or cocktail.

|Art through Distillation Like the micro breweries and small wineries that have come before, a small group of artisanal distillers are redefining the spirit world by introducing new and amazing products. As the first artisanal distillery in the Chicago area (and in Illinois), we are producing unique spirits that provide modern connoisseurs with an unparalleled taste experience. We are a very small operation - just the two of us and one part-time employee, along with our still, Ethel. Our small size allows us to bring a discriminating personal touch and hands-on craftsmanship to everything we make. We challenge the status quo by providing our discerning customers world-class spirits, produced locally. Handcrafted Spirit Production Distilling spirits is far more than a scientific process – it is an art form. Derek, our master distiller, starts with the equivalent of a blank canvas. He then selects from a palette of fruits and exotic botanicals to create one-of-a-kind spirits that reflect the unique flavors of the ingredients and express his personal passion and energy. Derek produces our spirits in small, carefully hand-crafted batches. Though each product has its own distinct personality and character, all North Shore spirits are created with the same purpose in mind – to create an elegant and superior spirit that is not only pleasant and enjoyable, but also provides a level of satisfaction that compares to drinking an incredible wine or the finest scotch.|
