On the shores of Torch Lake (1554 North East Torch Lake Drive to be precise), lies a production campus that is home to a newly expanded Mammoth Distilling. Earlier this year, we consolidated our 650-liter Carl still, a mash tun, hot liquor tank, and cold filter, two fermentation vessels, several large bulk storage tanks, our bottling line, rick house and other operations into two of the three buildings on the property. After some necessary building modifications, our still is now fully configured and final testing and permitting is currently underway.
After having to locate our still to a remote location for the past few years, we are excited to finally reunite all our equipment under one roof—or least on one piece of property. The campus setting is undergoing further development to provide an outdoor component to the campus so visitors can enjoy the natural setting while sipping a cocktail, listening to live music or roasting marshmallows in a fire pit. This summer, a Thursday outdoor music series is being planned to provide a festive weekly event where visitors can come for an evening of fun after a day on the lake or golf course.
The property is affectionately known as ‘The Alcohol Factory’ to friends and family, admits Chad Munger, Founder and CEO of Mammoth Distilling. But it really is our Northern Michigan home. We started in Central Lake on this very property, and this latest round of expansion demonstrates our commitment to maintaining this community as the inspiration behind our brand.
Chad expects the entire campus will be fully functional very soon, and looks forward to beginning a regular tour schedule in early summer.
“Most of this is a bit out of our hands as we are going through the final review and approval process with a number of oversight organizations, but we’re very close and should be ready to host tours by the time the summer season is in full swing.”
