  • Rhine Hall & Merchandise Mart (map)

The Event: Chicago by Volume: Cook & Distill

We know two things for sure: Chicagoans aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and they LOVE when winter ends. So welcome to Spring: We’ll be diving right in to create our very own 3-course “Peace Out, Chiberia, it’s Spring Now” appetizer meal.  Your hands-on class menu includes:

  • Sirloin sliders
  • Fennel potato salad
  • Strawberry rhubarb crisp 
  • Specialty Spring-inspired Rhine Hall cocktail

But that’s just the start of our adventure. Then we’re headed to Rhine Hall for a private tour from one of the owners themselves.  They will walk you through the distilling process and end with a tasting of one of their delicious brandys.  Let me tell you, you haven’t had good brandy until you’ve tried Rhine Hall.  You can then either stay and hang out at their cozy bar or come back to Merchandise Mart, where your journey began.

About Chicago Untapped:

Professionally, George and Steph have a combined background in business, marketing & operations management. What that really means is they spent too many years in school/work and now spend way too much time talking in coffee shops.

They love nerding out on “brilliant ideas” and entrepreneurship, passion and strategy, and they really need to curtail the articles they email each other every day. Chicago Untapped is them living their loves, connecting the dots, and offering up to the masses.

Personally, these crazy kids are kind of super friends. They are beyond passionate about people, the world’s places, and all the connections that lie in between. They believe life is short, and we all should be empowered to make the most of it. Exploring, connecting, experiencing is something we all have the power to do in limitless ways.

Life is what you make of it. They want theirs to mean more, and they want yours to mean more too.
