Grand Hotel – Grand Distillers Weekend – May 21 – 23, 2021

Grand Hotel - Ballroom Dancing Weekend

Join us for Grand Hotel’s first-ever Distillers Weekend, featuring Iron Fish Distillery of Thompsonville, MI.

Iron Fish Distillery is Michigan’s first farm distillery, located on a reclaimed homestead farm, originally settled in the 1890’s. This family-owned and operated farm distillery, named for the Steelhead that journeys up the nearby Betsie River, “Returns Spirit to Its Origin” by creating remarkable spirits from their own grains, as well as from farms who also practice the same respect to the land and watersheds. Iron Fish also carefully sources older bourbons for finishing in barrels from around the world. We are proud to partner with Iron Fish this season and offer a crafted weekend package! Our Food and Beverage Team hand selected barrel finished bourbons from over 1,200 barrels aging in the Iron Fish Rick House for an inspired weekend of food, spirit and conversation.

Arrive Friday evening to a welcome reception featuring a specialty cocktail hand-crafted with Grand Hotel signature barrel pick, Bourbon Whiskey finished in Mezcal Barrels. Grand Hotel’s food and beverage team worked closely with the distillers at Iron Fish to choose this unique barrel finished bourbon offered exclusively at Grand Hotel this season.

On Saturday guests will have the special opportunity to hear an interactive presentation by Grand Hotel Resident Historian Bob Tagatz and Richard and Sarah Anderson, co-owners of Iron Fish Distillery. You may even learn a few prohibition secrets from Grand Hotel and Northern Michigan!

Saturday evening get dressed in your finest and enjoy a journey through four unique Iron Fish spirits paired with a specialty and delectable four-course tasting dinner in the Main Dining Room designed by Grand Hotel Executive Chef Michael Cerrie while learning the providence of each. Discover the complimenting flavors of each spirit and food and how each one’s production and ingredients affects its flavor.

At your leisure, take in the surroundings of Mackinac Island by bike and receive a $40 credit per person towards a picnic lunch from Grand Coffee & Provisions.

We hope you will join us for this fun and unique Grand Distillers Weekend featuring our friends at Iron Fish Distillery!
