Fans of Detroit City Distillery’s award-winning spirits can now enjoy them in a cozy holiday-themed setting the Eastern Market company is calling a “Winter Whiskey Wonderland.”

Beyond the festive lighting, the distillery’s tasting room has also released a new holiday menu with 15 new craft cocktails.

“Think of this as a personal invitation to a fantastic Christmas house party with way better booze,” Detroit City Distillery co-owner Michael Forsyth says. “Our bartenders really pushed themselves to create some inventive and creative cocktails for the occasion. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but right now, my two are the Claus for Vacation and Fizzions of Sugar Plums, and pretty much everything on the whiskey side of the menu. Grab your friends for a drink and revel under the lights!”

Claus for Vacation features Gilded Age Vodka infused with peppermint and almond tea, strawberry, fernet, and heavy cream, while Fizzions Of Sugar Plums includes Shopkeeper’s Gin, aperol, lemon, honey-plum tea jelly, and bubbly.
