• Two James Distilling Co. J. Riddle Peated Bourbon Whiskey

The nose shows it high corn percentage with aromas of dry corn husk, brown butter, snicker doodle dough, and a just there peat/earth note. The palate echoes the nose with a flavor set of cookie dough, funnel cakes and a light hop/peat note on the finish. D&M Tasting Notes

Detroit has a long and colorful history when it comes to booze; during Prohibition it’s estimated that the Detroit River, Lake St. Clair and the St. Clair River, carried 75% of the liquor supplied to the United States. One of the things that we enjoy about the new rise of Craft distilleries is that the people behind them, their hopes dreams and aspirations are of this time and place; these are our contemporaries, not our ancestors. As a result we can talk about the start of Two James as it came to be in the last decade. Partners David Landrum and Peter Bailey started bantering around business plans for a distillery in the early 2010s. They even had a California Sojourn in Santa Barbara (it didn’t work out) before they returned to their native Detroit to set up shop. While there is a rich history of distilling in Michigan (Leopold Brothers got their start in Ann Arbor) and Detroit, they realized that theirs would be the first legal distillery in Detroit since Prohibition. The space they chose for their distillery is a former taxi repair shop in the shadow of the Michigan Central Station in Corktown: the oldest neighborhood in Detroit. In the early days they were helped by David’s 15 years in the restaurant industry, and they counted the late Dave Pickerell as a mentor and informal adviser. While they began in 2013 with vodka and gin, their stated goal was always to focus on brown spirits. Michael Kennel, D&M

Two James Spirits is proud to announce the release of our newest spirit, J. Riddle Peated Bourbon. This unique spirit pairs the sweet robust flavor of corn bourbon with the elegant smokiness of single malt whiskey. The mash bill possesses subtle notes of vanilla, buttered popcorn, sea salt, fresh cut grass and light smoke. What started off as an experimental mix of grains developed into a delicious bourbon unlike any other on the market. Distilled on-site from 79% Michigan Corn and 21% Scottish Barley and aged in full-format 53-gallon new American oak barrels, we are excited to release our first barrels and for you to savor and enjoy!
