More About Us
8 Mile Vodka and the Detroit Spirits Distilling Company reflect of the vision and passion of two brothers who were born in Detroit, and grew up playing sports on basketball courts and ball diamonds in their east side neighborhood.
After attending Denby High, they worked summers in the auto plants. It was during those years when their fierce work ethic was forged, along with a great desire to do something important here. They credit their parents and their roots on Detroit’s east side for instilling in them a lifelong pride and passion for the city and they want to be part of its resurgence.
The founders of 8 Mile Vodka were born in Detroit, and Detroit is in our DNA. We are proud and passionate about this town because it has shaped who we are and what we do.
We’ve been fortunate, and we are committed to giving back so that we can help Detroiters survive, thrive and be as proud of their city as we are.
That’s why we are donating a portion of our sales to the Eight Mile Boulevard Association, a non-profit established in 1993 by 13 communities along 8 Mile Road whose mission is to revitalize and promote the 8 Mile transportation, business and residential corridor between I-94 and I-275 by linking the efforts of the public and private sectors.
