Event Producer

The Whiskey Factory is one of the city’s newest and most unique private event venues. Located between Downtown and Eastern Market. The venue is steeped in history and heritage. It once housed Goebel’s Brewery, and decades later, the Stroh’s Ice Cream factory. Today the site is home to Detroit City Distillery, creator of small-batch spirits – whiskies, gins, and vodka.

We launched the space in 2018 with much acclaim. The venue is nearly booked for 2019 and rapidly filling up for 2020. We are seeking an event producer to help us execute unforgettable, experiential events ranging from weddings to large scale corporate events to intimate fundraising dinners. As the event grows, we are seeking a creative, organized individual to grow with us.

SOLD OUT: 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 Bourbon No. 1: Smoked Bourbon- Sold out

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 - sold out

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 - sold out

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.


We're bringing back the whiskey that started it all.... Bloodline Whiskey.

Join us as we celebrate our 4th anniversary with a new American whiskey inspired by a great American City. Whiskey tastings, specialty cocktails, food pairings and live music all night.
