Gathering content, coordinating contributors, conducting interviews, writing, photographing, and editing articles for each new issue of Artisan Spirit Magazine is a crap ton of work (technical term), but we’re so happy that we’re the ones who get to do it. Each issue is a love letter to an industry of makers, risk takers, and hard workers. You keep us supplied with an endless amount of material and inspiration. We are eternally grateful.
Our Summer 2015 issue is full of articles that reflect the vast range of matters a craft distiller faces on a daily basis. Maybe it’s microbial contamination in your mash, trying to explain to your state the difference between you and a liquor store, or choosing and working with a distributor…
Some of the topics we’re covering are:
- Blending the right barrels to achieve your desired product
- Transitioning from a day job to distilling
- The art of newsletter marketing
- 6 telltale signs it’s time for a package redesign
- Michael Kinstlick’s updated industry white paper
- A personal account of one first-timer’s ADI Convention experience
- And more, more, more!
Featuring these craft distilleries:
- Black Button Distilling
- Bloomery Plantation Distillery
- Louisiana Spirits
- Philadelphia Distilling
- Saxtons River Distilling
