On our trip up we stopped in Sparta Michigan, there we followed the GPS to Bier Barrel Distillery, located inside Celler Brewing. Within minutes we met Joel Bierling and we struck up a great conversation. Devil's Message Rum is a clear rum with a distinctive aroma. I think you'll enjoy reading more about our taste test and how I managed to drain 1/2 bottle in just a few hours.... There are Five spirits distilled there and we will touch on those in the next blog.
While In Traverse City, we often visit the Leelanau Peninsula. Last year we came upon Northern Latitudes Distillery and sampled their Manitau Passage Rum. If you have read our Spirits Taste 2013 you read about our opinion of this great mixer rum. Additionally their line of spirits beyond Rum is excellent. They are introducing a Ginger Vodka we always stock up on their Limoncello di Leelanau. Really you gotta taste their line! We will talk more about our visit in a later blog.
Finally we managed to stop at Grand Traverse Distillery. I have gone there nearly every year since we found it some 5 years ago. Their Vodka was the first attraction and they have added SO much more. The best thing is we talk to Landis Rabish the Distiller and discuss rum, Scotch as well as other Distilled products -- Epic end? we taste a 9 month aged Rum, still waiting to find its best -- And talk of White Rum and more... That too will come in a blog just days away...
