Michigan Craft Spirits Take Off

The state that is home to Beer City USA now also is 6th in the country for crafting hard liquor. 

The American Distilling Institute says America has more than 600 craft distilleries with another hundred under construction. 

The  Michigan Liquor Control Commission shows 32 licensed small distilleries in our state. 

Walter Catton at Coppercraft Distillery in the city of Holland tells WOOD TV it is filling five barrels of bourbon a week, but by this summer it plans to triple that output.  

Catton told the TV station that the explosive growth the beer "brewers saw 25 to 30 years ago, we’re seeing that same growth rate, on a much smaller scale.”
