The Cartel Hour by Cask Cartel 29: The Whiskey of the North - Traverse City with Chris Fredrickson
Play • 1 hr 2 min

After Chris Fredrickson found plans for distilling equipment as a part of a long lost family legacy, his interest in whiskey skyrocketed from being a connoisseur to a creator. Dubbed The Whiskey of the North, Traverse City is making waves with not only their unique climate for aging up in Michigan but also harnessing the Cherry Capital of the World to create products that do justice to the sweet and sour fruit.
