    The tour is an awesome deal! Grab a cocktail from the bar before you go down. It can help if you taste something you don't drink often or enjoy. Line up your tasting glasses for the pourer too! Cheers

    Great tour they have! Found a groupon so saved half price. Great mix drinks to buy as you wait for the tour. Then you get straight shots of their distills. Lots of fun!

    Great Lakes Distillery makes a limited supply of hand-craft distilled spirits. They offer tours and tastings for only $7 so it’s a pretty good bargain. My favorite was the Kinnickinnic Whiskey. Read more

    Inexpensive and fun. Tour is really just history of GLD and then a tasting; which thats what everyone is there for so it's perfect.

    A great Milwaukee institution! Try a Rehorst Gin gimlet or our "Hunt and Peck" cocktail, made with Kinnickinnic Whiskey, Carpano Antica, and Ramazzotti Amaro.

    Milwaukee’s first distillery since Prohibition brews award-winning spirits and hosts tours complete with tastings. Don’t miss the Pumpkin seasonal spirit – it comes out in October and goes FAST!

    Did you know that GLD buys back their bottles as part of a sustainability/reuse program - saves $$ and environment. ($1 /bottle for consumers) They are also part of Green Wisconsin Tourism program.

    Milwaukee's local distillery is one of our favorite places to knock back a few cocktails. The guys (and gals) there are loads of fun and always experimenting with something new and/or crazy. Always a

    You can buy their alcohol and save about $6 at the discount liquor store in waukesha. It was definitely a great experience!

    Moscow Mule was great. The 6"5 female bartender doesn't like to wait on people. As a matter of fact, she'll flat out ignore you-- when it's not even busy.
