Headed to Lower Town
Toledo has added its name to many classic varieties of produce,
but so far has had no bourbon on its own. Toledo Spirits added Lowertown NinetyNine, the city’s first commercially produced bourbon, to its offerings in April. Created in rye casks and then rested in zinfandel casks, Lowertown NinetyNine is the first release in a planned series of Lowertown Bourbons. Fans can join the Lords of Lowertown, a club offered by Toledo Spirits that gives members access to “exclusive whiskey experiences,” at lowertownbourbon.com.
