Grand Traverse Distillery is the first distillery in the Great State of Michigan to earn the Pure Michigan designation for our bottles based on their commitment to the use of local agriculture and pure Michigan water. When you open a bottle of the bourbon for the first time you are truly about to enjoy one of Michigan’s finest hand-crafted products.
Color: Deep, brilliant copper with hints of gold.
Aroma: The aromatics are complex and pure with scents of toasted grain, caramel, vanilla bean, smoky hardwood charcoal notes, nutmeg, and cigar box.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and not as dense or assertive as many Bourbons, which is interesting as it’s bottled over-proof without showing a hint of being hot.
Taste: The palate is in full agreement with the nose offering a silky and zesty marriage of fruit, caramel, pepper and brown baking spices with a silky blast that coats the palate and lingers for minutes.
