Headed down to Lowertown
Toledo has added its name to many classic varieties of products, but until now, hasn’t had a bourbon to call its own. Toledo Spirits added Lowertown NinetyNine, the city’s first commercially-produced bourbon, to its offerings in April. Created in rye barrels and then rested in zinfandel barrels, 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.
