Detroit, Mich. – Detroit City Distillery (DCD) won three gold medals for its Michigan-made whiskies at the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco this year. Butcher’s Cut Bourbon and Homegrown Rye won Double-Gold Medals – the highest prize awarded at the competition. It was the second Double Gold for Homegrown Rye, which also won in 2020. In addition, DCD’s newly released Four Grain Bourbon earned Gold.
“Bringing home three golds for our three whiskies is like sweeping the Olympics in the spirits business,” says Michael Forsyth, co-owner of Detroit City Distillery. “We go against the top distilleries from across the globe, some of whom are much bigger and more well-known than we are. Many have been making whiskey for decades at the highest level. In Michigan, we have the freshest water in the world and some of the most diverse agricultural production in America. When you combine that with our Detroit work ethic, it’s the right ingredients to make some of the best whiskey in the world.”
