Long Road Distillers opened May 28, 2015 on the west side of Grand Rapids as neighbors to the established Mitten Brewery. As the first distillery in Grand Rapids it truly has been a long road to having locally made liquors!
Long Road opened with three locally sourced spirits; Vodka, Gin, and White Whisky with plans for barrel-aged spirits like bourbon, brandy and a wheat whiskey. Everything is made-in-house with no rectified spirits keeping with the ‘Long Road’ theme.
Long Road hopes to begin distributing bottles by the end of summer. For now, you can buy one at the distillery, priced at $30 for a 750 ml bottle of vodka, gin or white whiskey and $18 for a 350 ml bottle. The distillery offers an annual membership buy-in with discount perks for $65.
There is also a kitchen with sandwiches and small plates that are high quality and priced accordingly.
They offer a tour of the distillery on the weekends for $15 limited to 10 people. The tour is given by a distilling expert and includes samples with an online reservation system to ensure your spot.
