The Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Journeyman Distillery


Three Oaks, Michigan might be a small town of just 900 people, but it carries a lot of history and some great whiskey. Journeyman Distilling has called it home since the fall of 2010 with owners Bill and Johanna and an opening team of just 3 employees. Since then, Journeyman has grown to a team of 65 and is a full grain-to-glass distillery – meaning everything is done by hand. Journeyman sources their corn and grains from small family farms in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Most of their products are certified organic.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Mezcal Negroni


We’re mixing things up with this classic gin cocktail. Instead of gin, we’re adding mezcal. It adds a smokey flavor that blends magically with the sweet and bitter flavors in the cocktail. If you’re not familiar with the Negroni, it is widely known as an aperitif but most certainly can be enjoyed as a cocktail at any time. The drink’s origins are pretty much unknown but what we do know is how it got its name. A Count by the name of Camillo Negroni asked his bartender at a small cafe in Italy in the early 1900s to make a few alterations to the already existing drink, such as gin in place of soda water and an orange garnish instead of lemon. Shortly after the drink grew in popularity, the Negroni family opened their own distillery and started creating a ready-made version of this classic cocktail.
