Confessions of a Mixologist: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.

Tagged:

Whiskey Acres Distilling Co., our new friends from Dekalb don’t have to go very far for their corn and wheat. Their tagline, “from seed to spirit,” says it all. They grow all of their grain on the farm and then use it to make their whiskey. We can’t lie – it’s pretty delicious. We have also waited patiently and their farm to glass bourbon is finally here! Whiskey Acres uses wheat as a secondary grain which helps create a softer, more rounded spirit. It’s great on a rock or mixed into your favorite cocktail.

This time even more beer-loving Binny’s employees explored, tasted and learned about some of Michigan’s best breweries – and even a cidery – and we’re bringing our passion back for you.
