Sometimes, taking the long road leads you to a familiar place. In the case of whisky, we’ve brought together two of our favorite local flavors: Long Road Wheat Whisky and pure Michigan maple syrup produced in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
We start with our original Wheat Whisky, fermented and distilled from red winter wheat grown at Heffron Farms in Belding, MI, and age it for over a year in new American oak barrels. Then, we finish the whisky in barrels used to age Michigan maple syrup for several months.
The result is an authentically crafted, pure Michigan whisky, with hints of vanilla, butter and toffee on the nose and a first taste, and a rich, long finish from time spent in the maple barrels.
