Four Kings Whiskey Collaboration
Four Kings is an annual whiskey collaboration between four of the Midwest's top craft distilleries: Corsair Distillery in Nashville, Tennessee, Few Spirits in Evanston, Illinois, Journeyman Distilling in Three Oaks, Michigan and Mississippi River Distilling Company in Le Claire, Iowa
These four distilleries each contribute 30 gallons of whiskey to be blended and released as "Four Kings" each spring in Chicago as part of the Chicago Whisky Week celebration. The whiskey is available exclusively in the Chicago market.
The collaboration has been going since 2014. Each year of the collaboration has produced a different whiskey. Only 500 bottles of each collaboration are produced.
