  • We just talked about how much influence Dave Pickerell had on distilleries and ironically, two james is a distillery that he had a hand in helping. 


  • Founded in 2013, they are the first distillery to start up in Detroit since Prohibition (and they might be the best thing out of detroit since then)
  • This specific bottle is their rye
    • 100% michigan rye
    • Water from the great lakes
    • Even more it is finished in vermouth barrels, which is not a part of their normal offering
    • Store pick from Michigan
  • They distill a lot of unique and young bottles
    • one that might be the most unique is their Johnny smoking gun whiskey 
      • East meets west is how they describe it
      • This is a whiskey crafted specifically to compliment the “umami” of the rich pork and fish broths of Japanese cuisine. Possessing intriguing smoke character from a two-stage maceration with a proprietary blend of Asian tea, this blend of 70% 7-year corn and 30% young rye will surely not disappoint. Enjoy and prosper!
    • Their bourbon is a very high rye bourbon at 36% rye
  • They do a white dog for their rye whiskey
