Rob and Kyle gave a fun and interesting tour! We even got to try our hand at bottling gin. The bacon and salted caramel whiskeys were our favorites.

Loved the tour! Awesome product! Better taste than top shelf items. I am a huge bourbon fan and their whiskey was off the charts. Would have given 5 star but had a few issues getting the tour set up. But once I was able to speak with them they made everything thing right. The communication issue was due to their recent facilities location change. I would highly recommend!

Dewey and the rest of the staff do a great job. Dewey's story of how the distiller began is entertaining and shows their dedication to producing a phenomenal product.

Great experience, Dewey was VERY delightful, nowledgeable, and discovering that he and his partners hand-built most of the equipment used in the distilling process, made it definately unique next to all other distilleriess. Worth the drive and will return!

About Ugly Dog Distillery

Master distiller Jon Dyer leaves nothing to chance, tasting every batch of vodka before it goes into bottling. With Ugly Dog Distillery’s ever-expanding distribution market, he recognizes it’s a potentially daunting responsibility—but he wouldn’t want it any other way. Along with his partner Dewey Winkle, Jon follows in the tradition of early American moonshiners, distilling one potent, handcrafted batch at a time. Jon processes the Michigan winter wheat with his handmade grinder, transmuting the wheat into the slow, clear drops of the distillery’s near-final product through copper tubing into a large vat. Originally starting with vodka, Jon and the gang have expanded into rum and a unique brand of bacon-flavored vodka, with more flavors in the works. The small but thriving distillery sometimes works round the clock, with Jon juggling the duties of company accountant, salesman, marketer, dishwasher, and occasional graphic designer. Visitors can tour the bubbling copper workshop during the day, and share beauty tips with Ruger, the German wirehaired pointer who gave the company its name.
