Ohio Liquor Laws Change In A Big Way

stillwrights-facebook-coverThere are some great things happening in Ohio for craft distillers. These new changes make it easier for us to do busines more like the big boys who have dominated the market. It allows micro-distilleries like ourselves, to deliver our passion laden, small batch spirits to discerning spirit drinkers who crave something different and local. This policy change from the Ohio Division of Liquor Control allows small distillers to sell directly to pubs and restaurants. We think these improvements are fantastic by making selling our StillWrights spirits so much simpler. We expect it to make a big impact quickly. Read all about it here–you just might recognize a familiar face. :)
