One bottle of the 100-proof corn whiskey will set you back a cool $125, but they come adorned with the club’s red and gold emblem, a take on the Spirit of Detroit. “Distilled exclusively for the City faithful,” each bottle reads.
The whiskey will be exclusively available - and must be consumed - at the community-oriented Detroit City FC Clubhouse, which flaunts two indoor fields for amateur leagues, a team merchandise store and a sports bar packed with team relics like signed jerseys, scarves, and trophies. They also recently bought a fern, which regulars are excited about.
