It's the first distillery to open in Detroit since prohibition (what took so long?!), but it certainly won’t be the last. Founders Peter Bailey and David Landrum purchased the taxicab storage and dispatch center on Michigan Avenue in July, and since have renovated the 7000sqft building into a space for local artists of all sorts. Oh, and also for drinking. Bourbon barrels without bottoms allow for a preview of the distillery, and their bottles literally serve as the centerpieces for the bar, in addition to the cocktails, of course.
