"In the adventurous spirit of this rugged but refined place, we carefully create these unique spirits, tinged with the clean air and brisk water found only here in Leelanau." 

-Mark Moseler

Sunday 12 - 5 PM
Closed 4th of July but open regular hrs all other days.

The tasting room, located on M‑204 in the village of Lake Leelanau, is as unique as the spirits that are created on-site. From the slab wood beams, to the massive black ash bartops, the room has that unique “where the North begins” feel.
