Partner and Founder of Detroit City Distillery Mike Forsyth meets Lynne at Podcast Detroit and jumps in for a deep dive on his career as a small business owner in the spirits industry, including how his upbringing lead him to become an entrepreneur. Mike tells Lynne why many distilleries don’t make their own spirits, and shares how he takes a lot of pride in making products using locally sourced ingredients. He wants to celebrate Detroit, its history, and carry on the legacy and standards of American craftsmanship that Detroit has set.
Detroit City Distillery creates small batch artisanal whiskey, gin and vodka using local ingredients sourced directly from farms near their distillery located in Detroit’s famed Eastern Market. Learn more about Detroit City Distillery at www.detroitcitydistillery.com
