It is a sad day for fans of Grand Traverse Distillery. Their tasting room in Kalamazoo will close for good, March 15th. Right now merchandise is marked down to 30% off, and their regular business hours will remain in effect until that date, and all scheduled events will be observed, including their weekly Blues Jam, Saturday's Finale Jam, Matthew Borr Live, Girlfriend's Getaway, and Yes! in the Haymarket District.

In a press release, Grand Traverse Distillery said, quote:

Although this chapter is ending, we are profoundly grateful for the community that sustained us over the past two years. Local artists, musicians, dancers, singers, poets, emcees, photographers, chefs, and mixologists have been brought together by beautifully crafted cocktails and finest spirits Michigan has to offer. for that we are proud.

Even though the tasting room will be closing, you will soon be able to find Grand Traverse Distillery spirits in local establishments like WineLoft, 600 Kitchen and Bar, Harvey's, Green Top, and in stores like MegaBev, Tiffany's, and Salut. If you're a super fan, you can snag two free passes to tour the distillery just by stopping into the Kalamazoo tasting room before they close.
