Valentine Vodka

Winner of WORLD'S BEST VODKA 2016 World Vodka Awards, London

Our signature vodka, distilled in copper pots is clear and has mild aromas of banana-coconut pudding and pastry aromas with a silky medium to full body and a creamy, peppery spice and talc finish. It is derived from a proprietary blend of three grains: corn, wheat and barley. We are one of the few distilleries in the world to craft vodka from a blend of grains. Valentine Vodka has been recognized by Anthony Dias Blue, editor-in-chief of The Tasting Panel magazine as one of the top vodkas in the world with a 94-point ranking – placing higher than noted international brands like Belvedere, Ketel One, Grey Goose and Absolut. Valentine Vodka was also awarded a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. In 2011, this Michigan-made product received a Double Gold Medal in the “Best Domestic Vodka” category by TheFiftyBest.com. The Beverage Tasting Institute also awarded Valentine Vodka with a Gold Medal “Exceptional” in both 2010 and 2011.

Valentine White Blossom

Our white blossom vodka starts with our award winning vodka and is then infused with elderflower and grapefruit. It is sweetened with all natural beet sugar from Michigan grown beets. Rich tropical aromas and flavors of lychee, peach, and elderflower with a satiny, dry-yet fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, peppery spice, cream, powdered sugar, and mineral finish. An expertly balanced and very flavorful floral vodka that earned a Gold Medal from The Beverage Testing Institute rated 92 points.

Liberator Gin

Valentine Liberator Gin, named after the B-24 Liberator Heavy Bomber produced in Detroit during World War II. Liberator is clear with aromas of peppery cinnamon, honey cardamom pastry, dried citrus, and candied juniper with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a zesty mélange of citrus, herbal roots, anise, pink peppercorn, and cinnamon bark on the long finish. I hand select nine botanicals from around the world. Bold flavors are brought to life through a longer maceration process while lighter notes are produced with a special botanical infusion process. Liberator Gin earned the Gold Medal and the titles “Best in Class” and “Best in Show” at the American Distilling Institute’s 7th Annual Judging of Craft Spirits. In addition, it earned a score of 90 points from the Beverage Testing Institute in 2013 and a Gold Medal from the International Craft Spirit Awards. Liberator is a well balanced and spice forward gin for all applications.

Liberator Old Tom Gin

Only a handful of distilleries in the world produce a barrel-aged gin like our Liberator Old Tom Gin. We take our Liberator Gin and age it in American Oak barrels for 2 years. Old Tom Gin has an aroma of juniper and pine with hints of oak, woody spices and citrus peel. The initial bursts of juniper berries are mellow and tame, and are followed by touches of vanilla, citrus, cardamom and cinnamon. Liberator Old Tom Gin earned the title of ‘Best Cask Gin in the World from the World Gin Awards. It also received a Gold Medal from the International Craft Spirit Awards. Liberator Old Tom Gin is a rich and unique Gin that is worth the wait.

Mayor Pingree Red Label

Mayor Pingree Bourbon whiskey is selected from exceptional barrels of our own Ferndale, MI triple pot distilled bourbon, married with the finest Lawrenceburg, IN traditional column-distilled straight bourbon casks. We honor the enduring spirit of 'Old Ping' with a bourbon for the people. Hazen S. Pingree, mayor of Detroit (1890-1897), is considered one of the greatest mayors in US history. He was a champion for the Detroiter, fighting monopolies and corruption.

Mayor Pingree Blue Label

Valentine's Mayor Pingree 'Blue label' Single Barrel Straight Bourbon is bottled from a single cask sourced from the former Lawrenceburg, IN distillery at full proof and non-chill filtered. Each single barrel was hand-picked by individual retailers to reflect the flavors and attributes most preferred by their specific clientele. Aged for at least 10 years, these selections reflect some of the oldest casks to ever age in the state of Michigan. Together with our finest retail partners, we are honored to share some of these special barrels with you in their purest form; straight from the barrel and uncut.

Mayor Pingree Black Label

Valentine's Mayor Pingree 'Black label' Bourbon is a limited release bottling deftly married from a special inventory of casks sourced from the former Lawrenceburg, IN distillery. The inaugural 2016 Small Batch blend was designed to showcase the 'outlier' profiles of barrels that have matured distinctive notes from those of their peers. Masterfully married for depth, layered flavor and complexity, the result is 324 bottles of bourbon at least 9 years of age, presented non-chill filtered and cask-strength at 117.2 proof with a robust nose and powerfully lingering finish.
