Craft Journey.

Journeyman distillery is located in Three Oaks, Michigan. This artisan distillery is located in EK Warren Historic Featherbone Factory, a former Buggy Whip, and Corsets factory built in 1883. Journeyman distillery is a grain-to-bottle distillery, meaning they do every step of the way themselves. Everything about them is hand-crafted, and their passion is crafting the best possible product, starting from scratch, never compromising on the quality. Originally they started-off with Whiskey, but have now expanded the range to include Gin, Rum and Vodka, as well.

Journeyman Bilberry Black Hearts Gin is infused with 9 botanicals. The main ingridient is Bilberry, a cousin of huckleberry and blueberry, which is smaller and of fuller taste and is extremely hard to grow, thus seldom cultivated. The fruit is mostly collected from wild plants growing on public lands. It is an everyman’s right to collect bilberries irrespective of land ownership. The bilberry is dark in color and usually appears black, thus the berry was commonly refereed to as a black heart in 19th century south-western England. The 9 botanicals are macerated in 100% Organic wheat base spirit and then distilled.

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
The original owner of the Featherbone factory was a man named E. K. Warren. In addition to making two products (now used in economics classes as the very definition of declining products) — buggy-whips and corsets — Mr. Warren was a die-hard abolitionist.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
