Journeyman Distillery Not A King Rye Whiskey
Everything about Journeyman Distillery is handcrafted, and they take pride in their home reflecting that meticulous attention to labor. The original maple factory floors date back to the 1800s. They possess a concrete bar crafted in Grand Rapids, adorned with etched coordinates on the side to commemorate this historic and distinctive location. Journeyman employs wood from the family barn in central Indiana, once serving as flooring for an early 1900s schoolhouse. EK Warren, the original factory builder, although a staunch prohibitionist, would likely be pleased to see his building shining so brightly. The bottles, akin to the building, are steeped in family history, eagerly shared with their patrons. The choice to become an organic distillery was a personal and straightforward decision for them. Several years ago, Bill decided to make a conscious choice regarding his consumption and food sources. To support local organic farmers, their distillery sources organic grain cultivated by family farmers in the Midwest. This concept aligns with the idea of eating with a sense of place, emphasizing local spirits, handcrafted cheeses, and organic Michigan fruits. Journeyman believes that organic practices convey respect for the land and its people. The distillery’s products are certified organic by the Midwest Organic Services Association (MOSA), an organic certification agency rooted in the Midwest. Their organic grain is produced without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, feed additives, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Journeyman Distillery Not A King Rye Whiskey is a new super limited release from the distillery. Not A King Rye is a nod back to George Washington’s original rye whiskey recipe: 60% Rye and 40% Corn. Bottled at 45% alc/vol.
