Journeyman Distillery produces handcrafted, organic spirits in the historic EK Warren Featherone factory located in Three Oaks, MI. Our products are certified organic, kosher and made with locally sourced grains.
Warren, a staunch prohibitionist, founded the historic building in 1883 as a buggy whip and corset factory. He revolutionized the manufacturing process of corsets with the use of the softer feather bone, over the stiffer whalebone in the late 19th century. EK Warren’s success reached worldwide attention putting Three Oaks, Michigan on the map.
We invite you to explore throughout the historic building and take a look through our gallery windows which let you view the distillation process as it happens.The original maple factory floors are still in place from the 1800s. We’re using wood from the owner’s family barn in central Indiana; wood that was once the flooring for an early 1900s schoolhouse. We have an original concrete bar made in Grand Rapids, with coordinates etched into the side—to mark this historic and unique location.
Everything about Journeyman Distillery is handcrafted. We offer artisan spirits with a focus on whiskey. While whiskey is what we originally fell in love with, we also offer a variety of quality organic spirits such as vodka, gin, and rum. We distill, bottle, label, and package each spirit here at the distillery.
