Last February when I wrote about the growing crop of local distilleries, who knew we’d be celebrating a movement a little over year and a half later with Craft Spirit Week, which hits its peak tonight at the Independent Spirits Expo?

Of that small group of fledgling distilleries, one has emerged as my favorite. In just one year Journeyman Distillery, located in Three Oaks, Michigan, has rolled out a wide-ranging profile of spirits, from a juniper-light gin, based on bilberries, to a light rum to the surprisingly smooth Ravenswood Rye. This week marks the official release of their first bourbon, called Featherbone for the restored corset factory that’s home to the distillery and bar.
