Josh, my notes have Traverse City sourcing its whiskey from Ugly Dog Distillery, but they expect to have their own product sometime in 2013. Do you have a link to MGPI as their source instead?
I don't have any direct confession from them, but Ugly Dog has not been around long enough for them to have distilled that bourbon. It also tastes like MGPI and the label says it is distilled in the "Midwest". If it was distilled in Michigan, they would have played that up. I will continue to dig on this, though.
