Celebrate #WorldGinDay - Saturday, June 14 - with these Michigan-Made Spirits

The 6th Annual World Gin Day returns on Saturday, June 14 and Michigan distilleries are proud to showcase their locally-crafted spirits in celebration!

World Gin Day (#WorldGinDay) is a celebration of all things gin – giving connoisseurs a legitimate “excuse” to mix up a cocktail and learn about all of the exceptional gins that are currently on the market – especially those #MadeInMichigan.

Currently, a handful of gins are made in the Great Lakes State, including:

Bilberry Black Hearts Organic Gin – Journeymen Distilling, Three Oaks
Civilized Gin – Civilized Spirits, Traverse City
Coppercraft Gin – Coppercraft Distilling, Holland
Flatlanders Gin – Flat Landers Distillery, Grand Rapids
Graying Gin – Two Birds Distilling, Kalamazoo
Jack Pine Gin – Northern Latitudes Distillery, Lake Leelanau
Knickerbocker Gin & Barrel Aged Knickerbocker Gin – New Holland Artisan Spirits, Holland
Liberator Gin & Liberator Old Tom Gin – Valentine Distilling, Ferndale (Detroit)
Old Cockney Gin – Two James Artisan Spirits, Detroit
Peninsula Gin – Grand Traverse Distillery, Traverse City
Ugly Dog Gin – Ugly Dog Distilling, Chelsea

Michigan’s craft distilling industry is growing at a rapid pace – ranking #4 in the nation in terms of overall number of distilleries (behind California, Oregon and Washington). To help unify the interests of the more than two dozen Michigan distilleries, the non-profit Michigan Craft Distillers Association was formed in 2014 to market the individual member businesses, their products and events, but also help bring a voice for the industry when it comes to legislative issues that affect the overall beverage industry.
