A Brief History:
Valentine Distilling Co., is located in a 5000-square-foot building which once housed the Wolverine Pool Table Company – just a stone’s throw from Woodward Avenue. In mid 2010, work began on the space resulting in a 1000-square-foot martini bar which looks into the 4000-square-foot distillery. Many of the building materials used in the renovations were reclaimed from abandoned or demolished buildings in Detroit. As one of the first distilleries in the world to use a triple-grain recipe, Valentine Vodka proudly utilizes a blend of Red Michigan wheat, malted barley and corn, which all come directly from Michigan farmers and suppliers. Last year, Valentine Vodka was awarded a Gold medal ranking during the Beverage Tasting Institute (BTI) 2010 International Review of Spirits Competition – the largest and most prestigious annual spirits competition in the United States. The BTI gave Valentine Vodka a rating of 90 in the “Unflavored Vodka” category. Rifino Valentine – the man behind Valentine Vodka – is a native of Leelanau County. Through his hand-crafted products, Rifino hopes to draw on the inspiration and history that the City of Detroit brings when it comes to distilled spirits, as he develops and grows Valentine Vodka. Valentine Vodka can be found in more than 900 outlets throughout Michigan and Illinois.
