Traverse City Whiskey Co. just launched its limited-edition American Lakeside Peach Whiskey.
Joining the company’s American Cherry and Michigan Apple whiskeys, the Lakeside Peach infuses what’s described by the brand as flavors of Michigan into a premium bourbon, adding hints of maple, sweet cream and brown sugar.
These Michigan peaches, said to be sweet and surprisingly resistant to the harsh Northern winters, are grown off the shores of Lake Michigan.
“Michigan peaches are full of flavor, and when combined with our premium aged bourbon, they create a delicious spirit,” said Chris Fredrickson, co-founder of Traverse City Whiskey, in a prepared statement. “Our new Lakeside Peach is on par with our cherry and apple whiskeys and just won a silver medal at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.”
Traverse City Whiskey draws on its family roots in the distilled spirits industry dating back to the late 1800s, sourcing grains from the Midwest. The distilling team, led by Fredrickson, makes products said to be inspired by patented distilling techniques invented by his great-grandfather during the prohibition era.
American Lakeside Peach is now available for purchase in GA, IL, IN, MI, OH, TN, and WI. It has a suggested retail price of about $30 for a 750ml bottle, which clocks in at 35% ABV.
