A craft distillery in Swisher has been named Distillery of the Year by the American Distilling Institute.
“It’s an incredible honor,” said Jeff Quint, founder and owner of Cedar Ridge Distillery. “There’s no higher award in the industry. In our 12-plus years of distilling, this is highlight No. 1, no doubt.”
The American Distilling Institute gave out the award at its conference and expo in Baltimore April 4. It’s the largest yearly gathering of distilleries in the country. Cedar Ridge beat out more than 1,300 craft distilleries in the country.
