All about Oppidan Spirits

Founded in 2015 by Jeff Walsh, ‘Oppidan’ means ‘townsman,’ the philosophy of Oppidan Spirits is that of innovation, discovering the next best thing – or inventing it. Distillation is a traditional business, and Oppidan’s new American school of distilling is pioneering the innovation in the centuries old evolution.

Oppidan takes tradition and turns it on its ear it with modern experimentation. Located not far from Lake Michigan, Oppidian specialize in American Gin and Whiskey, changing the paradigms of the industry.  

They have a unique Bourbon utilizing a Solera-style maturing process, which the founder of Oppidan says is a rarity, maturing in three different wood types: American Oak, French Oak, and Oloroso Sherry barrels
