Journeyman Distillery is 100% Organic

      Everything about Journeyman Distillery is handcrafted, and their decor reflects attention to labor in every way. The original maple factory floors are from the 1800s. They have an original concrete bar made in Grand Rapids, with coordinates etched into the side—to mark this historic and unique location. They’ve used wood from the family barn in central Indiana; wood that was once the flooring for an early 1900s schoolhouse.
     They take pride that EK Warren, the original builder of the factory—while being a staunch prohibitionist—would be proud to see his building shining bright. And, their bottles are like their building: steeped in family history that they love to share.
     Bill Welter started Journeyman Distillery on Oct. 7th 2011. They produce small batch organic rye whiskey among many other fine spirits at the old Featherbone factory in downtown Three Oaks Michigan. They are big fans of the fine spirits they produce and the fine spirit they sell, Bill likes to think of himself as a pioneer blazing a new trail in the world. By all means visit the distillery and sign up for a tour… you’ll be glad you did.
