Valentine Distilling

Ferndale, MI

This was a happy accident. I was at a different pub and saw Mayor Pingree as a drink on the list. I got all excited and had to ask. Ends up, this is a line of alcohol named after my Great Uncle Hazen Stuart Pingree who was both Mayor of Detroit and Governor of Michigan. I know some of the political history and I always enjoy seeing the statue in downtown Detroit at Grand Circus Park. I met Rifino Valentine and had a ball talking about my family and touring the facility. Cheers!
