AN HONESTLY CRAFTED
MICHIGAN WHISKY

Long Road Wheat Whisky is an honestly crafted, 100% Michigan-made whisky from Grand Rapids’ first distillery.

It is full-bodied and full-of-flavor – proof that careful distillation and respectful treatment of the process results in a more authentic taste. We continue to put everything into getting this one just right, starting with the red winter wheat we source from a farmer we know by name.

Enjoy this 100% Wheat Whisky on the rocks or in your favorite whisky cocktail!
