Journeyman Distillery, Three Oaks

Journeyman Distillery is an Organic Spirits Distillery, located in the EK Warren Historic Featherbone Factory, in Three Oaks, Michigan.

Warren, a staunch prohibitionist, founded the historic building in 1883 as a Buggy Whip, and Corsets factory. He revolutionized the manufacturing of corsets with the use of the softer featherbone, over the stiffer whalebone for corsets in the late 19th century. EK Warren’s success reached worldwide attention putting Three Oaks, Michigan on the map.

We invite you to explore throughout the historic building and take a look through our gallery windows which let you view the distillation process as it happens.The original maple factory floors are still in place from the 1800s. We’re using wood from the owner’s family barn in central Indiana; wood that was once the flooring for an early 1900s schoolhouse. We have an original concrete bar made in Grand Rapids, with coordinates etched into the side—to mark this historic and unique location.

Everything about Journeyman Distillery is handcrafted. We offer artisan spirits with a focus on whiskey. While whiskey is what we originally fell in love with, we also offer a variety of quality organic spirits such as vodka, gin, and rum. We distill, bottle, label, and package each spirit here at the distillery.

  • They offer several different types of liquor flights, which were fun to try without over indulging. The food was good, but had interesting unique twists. The only negative part of our visit was our service. It was busy, but plenty of open tables all around and it took forever to be served. We waited a long time for our food and we all ordered just salads. When they did finally come out, 2 of the 4 weren't dressed properly. The waitress appeared annoyed, when we raised our concern. Seems like a nice place, and maybe our service experience was just a fluke. I'd say give them a try when you have some extra time. =)
  • Fun atmosphere with great food and drinks. Be aware that it's an old factory so the acoustics tend toward the loud side when there is a crowd. But the great staff and products are worth a visit! Do yourself a favor and have a gimlet when you visit. Their gin is excellent.
