We are Midwestern Artisans
You’ll only find our spirits in the Midwestern US. Unlike some other distilleries, we view being a regional craft distillery as our destination, not merely as a path to entering the spirits market. We are true artisans – we do most things by hand, peeling fresh lemons for each batch of gin, distilling 60 gallons at at a time, bottling each spirit one bottle at a time. Our owners are directly involved in the day-to-day operations, whether running the still, filling barrels or overseeing a bottling run, or working with bar, restaurant and retail partners, or speaking directly with our customers who visit our tasting room.
Perhaps most intriguing about Half Day is its name, which provokes more interest and debate than any other place name in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
Contrary to popular theory, the town of Half Day was not named because it was a half day’s journey from Chicago. The town’s true name was Halfda in honor of a friendly chief.
Adventurers are welcome to stop by and learn the fun story while enjoying refreshing beverages and delicious eats!
