THE BUTCHER BEHIND THE BOURBON
BY MASTER DISTILLER, JOHN PAUL JEROME
The butcher behind Butcher's Cut Bourbon is John "Yogi" Jerome, my grandfather. He lost his finger making a whiskey barrel. He traded his motorcycle to bootleggers for a rifle. And after World War II, he began his career as a butcher in Detroit’s Eastern Market next to the slaughterhouse that I transformed into our distillery. To honor his life and legacy, I created Butcher’s Cut Bourbon using the finest cuts of corn, rye and roasted barley that I double barrel aged with hand-smoked Michigan northern oak. The result is a bourbon that is timeless and true with exceptional character, just like the man that inspired it.
At Detroit City Distillery we make spirits that have a story.... a true story. When we say that Butcher's is "a timeless spirit from a storied past." it's our way of sharing our history with you. It's our sincere hope that you'll create many memories of your own over a glass of bourbon, and that is something that we can share forever.
Cheers. - John Paul Jerome
BUTCHER'S DRINKING BOURBON
Detroit City Distillery calls Eastern Market home. Started in the 1850’s, Eastern Market is the largest, oldest public farmer’s market in America. It’s a place where butchers were bootleggers and farmers are family.
Over a century later, butchers still rule the market and little has changed. The fine art of butchery has been passed down through the generations and continues to this day. We're thankful for the men that put meat on our table and give the Market its character.
Our good friend Jenna Belevender documented the butchers that inspired our bourbon. Enjoy the finest cuts. More at jennabelevenderphotography.com
