Grand Traverse Straight Bourbon isaged 3 years and 3 months in a climate controlled rick house. It is cut with Michigan Great Lakes water. Grand Traverse does not chill filter any of their whiskeys or bourbons. Chill filtering removes fatty acids from the whiskey which can remove flavor.
Grand Traverse Distillery is a hands-on distillery. The distillers mill-in from local grain. They make cuts by taste. They're mashing before dawn and blending after sunset. Only when a batch exceeds their standard do they bottle it themselves. Countless hours and unparalleled attention go into every proof gallon of their products.
