Returning spirit to its origin, Iron Fish Distillery is the first full line farm distillery in Michigan since Prohibition. Every step of the process is done by hand on their 119 acre, environmentally certified farm, from growing grain to milling, mashing, fermenting, distilling and bottling spirit.
They returned a long time abandoned farm originally founded in 1887, grow winter wheat and rye, manage a small vineyard, and operate a state-of-art production facility, converting grain into spirits served on site and through wholesale distribution. Iron Fish’s farm is environmentally verified under the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program. Their distillers source and seek the best non-GMO and organic grains from Northern Michigan, and they are pleased to support the growing trend of farms shifting grain production for animal feed stock to the local beverage and food movement. Their four season soil-to-spirit end destination is situated in a growing West Michigan regional hub of agricultural destinations tied to local food, wine, mead and craft brewing producers. It features tours, spirits tastings, live music, cocktail classes, community events and fundraisers. Their newly renovated historic barn hosts corporate events, weddings and concerts.
