THE WORLD’S BEST GIN!

– THE FIFTY BEST COMPETITION, 2017

Introducing Long Road MICHIGIN, a spirit as unique as the peninsula that inspired its creation. This seasonal release was developed to showcase that world-class gin could be made using ingredients exclusively from our great state.

MICHIGIN’s base is Red Winter Wheat from a farmer we know by name and flavored with a unique line-up of Michigan botanicals.

As with all gins, juniper is the star of the show – but unlike others, MICHIGIN has a sense of place.

Harvested by hand on Beaver Island, the juniper used in MICHIGIN provides fresh, bright flavors and a taste you can only get from Michigan’s West Coast.

The remaining botanicals have been sourced from throughout the Mitten from small farms, fields, and friends, highlighting the abundant agricultural diversity of the Great Lakes State.
