America in a bottle!
Journeyman Distillery is located in a 19th century corset and buggy whip factory in Three Oaks, Michigan. EK Warren a hardcore prohibitionist in his time founded the company back in 1883 and the building where bottles are distilled, aged and bottled all under one roof hasn’t changed much. At Journeyman they focus on distilling handcrafted, organic spirits, from Gin, Vodka to all kinds of Whiskeys. As they are located on the northern edge of grain-fed American heartland it is no wonder that Whiskey from all kinds of grain is their largest product category.
Their Journeyman Featherbone Bourbon is like America in a bottle! Corn and rye from Illinois, wheat from Michigan, and barley from Wisconsin all come together to be distilled in a 19th century Michigan distillery, founded by a hardcore prohibitionist.
Distilling Bourbon is classically American, which is why this whiskey is named Featherbone Bourbon after the innovative product once manufactured the historic Featherbone Factory in Three Oaks, a century ago at a time when manufacturing in Michigan was synonymous with American made. Bourbon is also about a sense of place or "terroir" best known to Kentucky. Featherbone Bourbon uses locally grown organic white corn, wheat and rye, Midwestern oak barrels and water from an underground aquifer in Three Oaks, this bourbon embodies the terroir and at the same time defines what Bourbon being made outside of Kentucky can be.
