Silky four-grain golf-inspired Midwestern Whiskey.
 
An industrious man named E.K. Warren built an innovative factory in Three Oaks, Michigan in 1883 (no original Oaks left, though). He started making two things that are still immensely popular: buggy whips and corsets. His revolutionized the manufacturing process and made his village a global phenomenon. About 120 years later, a lad named Bill Welter travelled to Scotland to learn about golf but found a lifelong friend instead: Greg Ramsay. They fell in love with Scotch Whisky and spent some time in Greg's home country, Tasmania, to learn everything one can about the precious Spirit. In 2010, Bill and Chuck Welter bought the middle section of E.K. Warren's old factory, renovated the place and established the Journeyman Distillery. The very next year, distilling started and now, it's high time we tasted the Whiskey born by Lake Michigan.
 
Silver Cross Four Grain is a gold medalist (San Francisco World Spirits Competition) comprised of four types of grain (equal parts of rye, corn, wheat and barley, all organic). Even though the label evokes images of Crusaders, the Silver Cross was actually a medal that was awarded at the annual golf tournament The British Open. It symbolizes friendship, camaraderie, spirited (ha, get it?) competition, and also the founder's love for golf. This expression is 90 proof and is a perfect companion for those collegial gatherings after a friendly match.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
