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.

Community-Earth day 2017

Our preschool family is one of the coolest groups of people in the world to us.  From birthday parties to “so what’s new at the Stillhouse today?” check-ins, to “where do I get one of those t-shirts?”, we’ve not felt more loved and supported by a group of people who were strangers just a few short months ago.  That’s one of the reasons why when the annual fundraiser showed up on our calendar, we worked out a way for the Stillhouse to be one of the sponsors of the event.   It’s still a little baffling to think of our business being a sponsor of an event but what a great time to foray into giving back via entrepreneurship in Kalamazoo, than the present?  I spent years going to summer camps at the Nature Center and then volunteering at the DeLano Homestead through young adulthood.  And Nic could spend all day outside whether tinkering with one of his many motorthings, installing car roof racks to carry fun adventure cargo at his “day job” or teaching our girls the basics of picking a great walking stick.  It seems quite natural to contribute to our preschool family by joining the fun this way.

Proceeds from the Earth Day event went to further the awesome early childhood development programming that our girls have had the privilege to be a part of since they were tiny.  Thank you to all of you who joined us Saturday April 22 (2017) to celebrate Earth Day, our beloved Kalamazoo Nature Center, and our community for some outdoor play and learning time.
