At Ann Arbor Distilling Co., we’re tired of industrial-grade spirits that taste more like butane and less like a beverage. So we set up shop to be able to build our spirits from scratch. Not every boutique distillery has the setup or the vision to start right from grain and manage the process all the way to your glass. One sip, and the difference is clear.

MICHIGAN WHISKEY

What do you do when you live in one of the most diverse agricultural states in the country? Some folks make pies, breads and jams. At A2DC, we make Fox River Michigan Whiskey – a blend of 4 Michigan grains filtered with cherrywood charcoal, all made by hand right in Ann Arbor. Fox River is a pure, barrel-aged Michigan whiskey that brings together Michigan’s rich soil, crops, water and a desire to get outdoors all into one bottle.

CRANBERRY

TASTING NOTES
A lovely spirit for any time of year, but a great gift to bring for any Winter dinner party. This liqueur is made with Michigan grown cranberries, and begins as a brandy. Cranberry concentrate is added to give the liqueur it's sharp flavor and pretty light hue.

ABSINTHE

Water Hill​ ​Absinthe Violette​ uses the classic ingredient list of wormwood, fennel and star anise, along with other, less common ingredients that pay homage to the terroir of Michigan, such as hops, linden and elderflower. The resulting spirit is a unique violet hue that transforms into a cool lavender when the spirit is diluted.
