  • I got the chance to try a glass of this at a bar in Michigan and was blown away by the flavor. 
  • It reminded me of something, but I could not put my finger on it and I still struggle putting my finger on what bottle this reminds me of


  • Detroit fueled prohibition and an entrepreneurial spirit that didn't follow the rules. 
    • eight childhood friends started a small distillery a century later
  • Detroit City Distillery creates small batch spirits using the finest local ingredients sourced directly from farms near their distillery 
    • The result is a drink of distinction made for the revolutionaries rewriting the history of a great American city.
  • This bottle: 
    • Made this the old fashioned way - on a small copper pot still in the back of an old slaughterhouse in Detroit’s Eastern Market.
    • From grain to glass, this whiskey celebrates the legacy of the farmers that make their spirits possible.
    • They use organic Rye from Washtenaw County, MI
      • 97% rye with 3% specialty malted barley
  • They do not say what the specialty malted barley is or what makes it special
  • They make 4 whiskies, 3 gins, and a Pączki Day Vodka that they release in February
