Detroit City was founded by a group of friends from Bath, Michigan whose goal was to create craft spirits using local ingredients. The name "two-faced" references the sometimes dishonest activities that were necessary to create American spirits throughout the 20th century. This bourbon blends 49% of their own 6 month old bourbon made with St. Clare County corn and 51% of a sourced 5 year old straight bourbon.

Tasting Notes

"There's kind of a fun rough and tumble taste to this bourbon - a classic, smooth sweetness and a smoky, spicy, leathery thread. Though the finish is a little rough, with the harsher tones of the younger whiskey punching its way through to the surface. This would benefit from the two whiskeys having more time to get to know one another in a barrel before bottling, but it is what it is."
