We had a personal tour as the Sunday Morning tour was us only. Was very informative and enjoyed our cocktails there and will surely enjoy the Vodka we purchased to take home.

We took the tour on a rainy Friday afternoon. We really enjoyed the tour--very informational and fun. The tasting flight was much more generous than we were expecting!

Nice cocktails on the menu...and they serve the original "old fashioned", wisconsin style. We did the distellery tour done by Ross. Great guy, let you taste everything. We had a sample of Batavia Ackkard, original Indonesian drink. Try this café!

Nice stories of liquor. Friends in Milwaukee Sitzmark Ski Club. A review is a review, this is why OI don't usually do these, just self promotion for the business.

Nice place to visit for team party. Brought company personnel for morale building exercise and it worked. MKE Day Party afterwards lacked a band.

We visited Lakefront brewing just prior and found this tour a little dry by comparison. That sais, the food was great and the drinks at the bar we excellent.
