Traverse City Straight Bourbon
Crowned as the mitten state—step aside Wisconsin, it's a common thing for them Michiganaders to use their left hand as a map. Here at the Traverse City Whiskey Co., you can find them up in the pinky producing the smooth, vanilla-rich Straight Bourbon Whiskey that you know and love.
The story of the Traverse City Whiskey Co. dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when the accomplished brewmaster, my great-great grandfather John Silhavy Sr., emigrated from Czechoslovakia and settled in Saginaw, Michigan. While John's professional life was focused on brewing, a talent he eventually passed down to his son, John Silhavy Jr., his real passion was distilling the perfect batch of whiskey and gin.
