Ugly Dog Vodka Distillery in Chelsea

There is a new vodka distillery in our state (opening May 2010) and despite its name --Ugly Dog-- it tastes pretty refined. Jon Dyer, pictured here, is the founder and master distiller who built most of the equipment on his own. It's location in Chelsea is at 14495 North Territorial Road. There is a story behind the name, of course. The vodka is named after Jon's dog, Ruger, whom he affectionately calls, Ugly Dog. He's a German Whirehaired Pointer and Jon designed the label on the bottle as well. He uses Michigan's grain to make his spirits and prints the labels and his Ugly Dog t-shirts in our state. All hail Michigan ;}
