A statement from the distiller notes that the new site includes 3,980-square-feet of space for the restaurant and 7,970-square-feet for the distillery. The project will cost approximately $4.2 million and the distillery looks to create 15 new jobs.

“It’s exciting to watch the plans come to life,” said Steve Vander Pol, co-owner of Eastern Kille Distillery, which was founded in 2014. “This facility allows us to nearly triple production and continue to expand and age our award winning barrel portfolio.”

 

He said they remain committed to making and aging all whiskey on site from grain, not sourcing their whiskey.

Eastern Kille Distillery makes a Michigan Straight Bourbon Whiskey and a Michigan Straight Rye Whiskey.

The new production facility and campus is located on 16 wooded acres, and the design is intended to highlight the effect the natural settings have on whiskey production, and the campus will feature a full kitchen and extensive cocktail garden in the woods.

“The kitchen and customer experience space features incredible views into the natural setting and draws inspiration from Japanese and modern Scandinavian architecture,” Vander Pol noted.

The distillery property is bordered by the White Pine Trail, a 92-mile hiking and biking trail, and features a path through the woods connecting the trail to the outdoor cocktail garden.
