Props to the latest alcoholic startup, Detroit City Distillery, located in Eastern Market. They say they’re making two kinds of whiskey right now, with plans for small-batch gin and vodka as well. They say they’re planning on opening their unpretentious tasting room in time for Flower Day, May 18, if at all possible. Keep your eyes peeled at 2462 Riopelle St., Detroit, or monitor the fledgling distillery’s Facebook page.
