Gin Bësk Fernet Absinthe Chicago
A gang of industry iconoclasts, Letherbee came together through a twist of fate, punk shows, and latenight drinking at local dives.
Rewind to 2007: Brenton Engel is cooking moonshine in his basement. Two years later, his “Illinois Joy” moonshine would create a cult following outside neighborhood bars and with restaurant cooks across the city. Brent soon starts bar tending and cohorting with some of Chicago’s most experienced cocktaileurs
and barkeeps, who would soon team up to become Letherbee Distillers.
With absolutely zero influence from outside investors or marketers, Letherbee's level of authenticity is second to none. Now distributing across the US, as well as Europe, the product family consists of the Original Label Gin, Barrel-Aged Absinthe, Autumnal & Vernal Gins, Bësk, and Fernet.
