Micro-distillery founded in 2009 with the challenge of manufacturing a premium vodka from 100% Michigan wheat that could be sold at a mid-range price. Ugly Dog Vodka is triple hand-distilled in small batches in equipment designed and manufactured by the company's owner. As he likes to say, "we make it the old fashioned way." The Distillery also makes rum and bacon flavored vodka and is in the process of adding more spirits to its line. Store hours are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday and 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on weekends.
