About Journeyman O.C.G Apple Cider Liqueur
The Featherbone Factory — built by E.K. Warren in the 19th century to manufacture women's corsets — sits on the banks of Lake Michigan just across the Indiana border in Three Oaks, Michigan. As the factory changed hands in the twentieth century, it became a production site for everything from buggy whips to pickles. Today, it's home to Journeyman Distillery and Bill Welter, Journeyman's master distiller.
Welter, who was formerly a banker in Indiana, began his journey when his family business was sold in 2006. He moved to Scotland, where he began to learn the art of craft distillation from Greg Ramsay (master distiller at Nant Distillery) and Bill Lark (master distiller at Lark Distillery). After returning to the United States, Welter spent time producing and resting whiskey using a prominent organic & kosher distiller’s facility in Chicago before opening the doors of his own distillery in Three Oaks with the intention to offer grain-to-glass spirits from day one/drop one.
O.C.G. Apple Cider Liqueur is a secret family recipe that has become known as "Old Country Goodness." It is made using only the best organic Michigan apple cider, apple juice and spices that are then fortified with Journeyman distillery's signature un-aged rye whiskey. Best served hot, cold, straight, mixed as a traditional liqueur with other spirits in cocktails or used for cooking. This un-aged rye whiskey is fortified with organic apple cider, organic apple juice and spices, earning 91 points from the Beverage Tasting Institute.
