Long Road Distillers held it’s grand opening to the public on Thursday, May 28th at 5 PM. The distillery is located at 537 Leonard St NW in Grand Rapids with The Mitten Brewing Co. as their neighbor and the also the recently opened Two Scotts Barbecue across the street. The distillery is a true “grain-to-glass” operation with everything milled, mashed, fermented, and distilled in-house. Their handcrafted vodka, gin, and whisky is sourced with as locally available ingredients as possible. The tasting room features a full cocktail menu of speciality drinks with Long Road’s spirits as a base and also features a kitchen with salad, and sandwich options.

A group of us were excited to try out the first distillery in Lansing. With my freshly turned 21 year old son and his girlfriend Megan, a group of us introduced them to the wonderful world of the cocktail at the newly opened American Fifth Spirits.

Uncle John's Cider Mill has been creating award winning hard cider and wines for years now, but did you know that they also create spirits? Uncle John's has quietly been working on perfecting their spirits; brandy and vodka make from apples. They also create a delicious Apple Dessert Wine created with fermened apple cider and blended with apple brandy for a perfect balance.
