Wonderful Bourbon of the North.
 
Traverse City, MI, is the perfect place to raise a Bourbon with its mild summers and cold winters. The trio of founders knew that when they established the distillery in 2012 in an old power station. One of them, Chris Fredrickson, found a cache of distilling patents filed by his great-grandfather in 1920. He revived the dream and started producing the "Whiskey of the North". In addition to weather that mirrors the wine regions of Europe, Traverse City distillery has another ace up their sleeve: new American oak barrels with a lighter char sourced from Kentucky and Tennessee.
 
Their Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a three-grain concoction (71% corn, 25 rye, 4% barley) that’s bottled at 86 Proof after it spends four years maturing. Its slight smokiness reminds of Scotch, and it offers a balanced dance of heat, strength and alluring flavors. Its character is strong enough not to disappear in a cocktail, while its citrusy palate makes drinking easy when neat.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
