Journeyman Distillery by DKGR, Three Oaks – Michigan

February 26th, 2018 by retail design blog

Built in the late 1800’s, the Featherbone Factory has long been a historic icon in the charming small town of Three Oaks, Michigan. Housing such attractions as popular antique stores, wine shops and the Acorn Theater, it quickly became an ideal home for a new organic, hand-crafted whiskey distillery and tasting room whose namesake is meant to pay homage to the areas nomadic past.

The existing history of the building became a natural backdrop to a very simple yet modern renovation for multiple distillery functions such as private tasting rooms, event space and the distilling production floor itself that house distilling equipment fabricated in Germany. The use of existing concrete and wood factory floors, salvaged materials from the area and refined millwork, the distillery design is an intriguing contrast between past and present.

    Great photography, somebody had their exposure blending and HDR skills on max to catch that much detail without it looking unbalanced in all that full daylight blasting through the windows!
