Musings about distilling, entrepreneurship and other fun

Available statewide

All of our spirits are available at the distillery, and we will have regular hours posted beginning in December.  Call the distillery line if you want to be sure to catch us before then (206) 376-0937.  You will soon be able to search on our Where to Buy page to see if your local bar/restaurant, grocery, beverage establishment carries us.  We are now available statewide so get out there and ask your favorite places to order Kalamazoo Stillhouse Spirits!  And thank you for supporting us.

Vodka release

It’s official, our first release is vodka!  As distillers, this is a big accomplishment for us because not all craft distilleries are equipped to make vodka, grain to glass, and we always knew we wanted to be able to, so here it is!  Our 100% wheat vodka is triple distilled and filtered, from locally sourced and milled grain with notes of butterscotch and vanilla (that’s just the wheat, no added flavors in our process).   This subtle-sweet spirit mixes well in a Mule, a vodka Martini, a Bloody Mary, or it can be used to make any number of liqueurs.  Some even sip it neat.

Na Zdrowie! Prost! Salute! A La Votre! Cheers!

Why ‘honest spirits. local people’?

Honest spirits. Local people.
That’s our mantra at Kalamazoo Stillhouse. We make spirits HONESTLY. That is, we start with Michigan grown grain, almost exclusively wheat, and complete every step of the process until bottling on site, using the authentic distilling techniques that our ancestors have used generation after generation. We are LOCAL people. We were born and raised here and there’s no place we’d rather grow our company than our hometown. We are not just locally “grown”, we also source and support local businesses as much as possible. Even our t-shirts are printed down the street.
