Ball Square Fine Wines

Perusing spirits buyer Nate Kruback’s well-curated selection of craft gins, small-batch bourbons, and world-class liqueurs is almost as fun as drinking them. He stocks unparalleled local spirits, amaros, and Japanese whiskey, and he’s starting to bring in private-label, handpicked blends from the likes of Angel’s Envy and Chicago standout Koval.
