Limited Edition Bottle Release.
Three Bourbons. Three Months.

Today, on our 4 year anniversary, we are proud to announce our “Bespoke Bourbon Series,” a celebration of the origins of craft whiskey. Three limited-edition single barrel bourbons with unique mash bills featuring Michigan grains and bottles adorn with hand-drawn illustrations will be released over the next three months.

Not to be missed by whiskey enthusiasts and collectors, these bourbons will be released one time and one time only. These are whiskeys that will not be made again and when they’re gone, they’re gone for good. 

Bespoke Bourbons will be released at special release parties at the Detroit City Distillery Tasting Room in historic Eastern Market at 2462 Riopelle. The releases will feature whiskey tastings, live music and bottles for sale on a first-come, first serve basis. Approximately 100 to 250 bottles will be available for each release, with a maximum of 2 bottles allotted per customer. Bottles will retail for $70. 

BESPOKE BOURBONS

Bespoke Bourbon No. 1: Smoked Bourbon

The first release will feature “Smoked Bourbon.” This bourbon has a mash bill of corn and rye from Dexter Mill and features oak-smoked 2 row barley malt from Pilot Malt house of Kent County. It was aged for 2 years in a 30-gallon white oak barrel. This beautifully balanced spicy and smoky whiskey is inspired by our love of drinking around the campfire.

Bespoke Bourbon No. 2: Four Grain Bourbon

The next release is “Four Grain Bourbon,” a celebration of the diversity of Michigan agriculture, with a mash bill of corn, wheat, rye and oak-smoked two-row barley. The most complex of the three bespoke bourbons, this whiskey has a slight smokiness with notes of vanilla, toffee and orange.

Bespoke Bourbon No. 3: Red Bourbon

The third and final release is “Red Bourbon,” featuring our Butcher’s Cut Bourbon finished in a red wine barrel. After aging for over two years in freshly-charred white American oak, we finished our signature bourbon in a cabernet-merlot wine barrel from Fieldstone Winery in Rochester. Hints of plum and berries shine through this bourbon, with soft, subtle tannins complimenting rich notes of caramel, hazelnut and cigars.
