Metro Detroit distillery  it’s a small-batch gin that’s made from 13 botanicals, a small batch bourbon or a whiskey made on the farm, there are plenty of detroit spirits to try out. You’ll find them in a variety of venues around the city, from bars to restaurants, but one of the best is Two James Spirits, which opened last year as Detroit’s first licensed distillery since Prohibition.

Two James partners Peter Bailey and David Landrum are part of a growing movement in craft distilling that is taking off all over the country. They pay homage to Detroit’s rich distilling heritage with products like 28 Island Vodka, which is named for the 28 islands on the Detroit River that were used as hideouts by bootleggers during Prohibition. They also make the Old Cockney Gin and Grass Widow bourbon that are available at stores in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor, and they have more bourbons and whiskeys on tap for future release.
