At four years old, Journeyman Distillery observed wryly (or is it rye-ly?) in a press release that it’s not yet old enough to legally drink its own product.
But that’s not stopping the Three Oaks, Mich., maker of spirits from throwing a party Saturday to celebrate its fourth anniversary.
Journeyman will kick off festivities at 11:30 a.m. with the release of its third batch of Three Oaks Single Malt, a whiskey made from 100 percent barley aged in a combination of ex-Featherbone Bourbon, ex-Road’s End Rum and port casks. Don’t delay, Journeyman warns, as earlier batches sold out quickly.

The anniversary party will also include live music throughout the day, with three acts lined up for the stage.
From 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Brett Wiscons of Indianapolis will perform his mix of “jangly pop, a dash of soul and moody acoustics.” From 5 to 7:30 p.m., Jeff Robinson, a local musician and crowd favorite, will grace the stage. And finally, modern troubadours Jim St. James and Scott Jordans will perform from 8 to 10:30 p.m.
