From the distillery to the glass!


Ann Arbor has a vibrant craft cocktail scene and on this tour you'll have a chance to explore it with an industry insider and cocktail expert.

Cocktails wouldn't exist without spirits, so our tour begins at a distillery making artisan products from Michigan ingredients. You'll spend some time learning about distillation and sampling their products in the tasting room before venturing on to explore two of Ann Arbor's best bars. During our short walks through the city's Old West Side, Downtown and Kerrytown neighborhoods I'll share stories about the history and culture of Ann Arbor. In the bars, I'll be able to help you navigate the menus and explain as much or as little as you'd like about the ingredients and techniques that go into your glass.

You must be 21 to participate in this tour. While drinking is an important part of the tour, note that focus will be on appreciating the craft and artistry of the modern cocktail trend, rather than taking a drunken tour of the city.
