In the roaring twenties, Detroit fueled prohibition and an entrepreneurial spirit that didn't follow the rules. A century later, eight childhood friends started a small distillery to make alcohol the old fashion way.

Detroit City Distillery creates small batch artisanal whiskey, gin and vodka using the finest local ingredients sourced directly from farms near our distillery and tasting room located in Detroit's famed Eastern Market. The result is a drink of distinction made for the revolutionaries rewriting the history of a great American city.

We're making whiskey at the old Stroh's Ice Cream factory....

We're launching a 20,000 square foot production facility at the former Stroh’s Ice Cream Factory and Goebel Brewing Company. We're expanding to the second location we call “The Whiskey Factory” to make as much craft bourbon and rye as humanly consumable. Stay tuned for more details on public events and tours.
