Almost a year after breaking ground on a new $4.2 million distillery and restaurant, Eastern Kille is anticipating opening the doors to its relocated home by the end of 2023. 

The project, which will include a restaurant, an approximately 8,000-square-foot distillery and production space and an outdoor cocktail garden, broke ground in January. According to co-owner Brandon Voorhees, the restaurant and distillery are nearing completion, and crews recently installed new signage for the project at 7755 Childsdale Ave. NE in Plainfield Township, near Rockford.
