American Micro Whiskey Distillers

A micro-distillery is a small, often referred to as “Artisan” 'boutique' or “craft“, distillery. While the term is most commonly used in the United States, micro-distilleries have been established in Europe, However these pages concentrates on the  USA and Canada whisky producers


Due to the period of Prohibition in the United States most small distilleries were forced out of business, leaving only the corporate dominated mega-distilleries to resume operation when Prohibition was repealed.


The popularity of micro-distilling spirits is expanding consistently, with many micro-breweries and small wineries establishing distilleries within the scope of their brewing or winemaking operations.


California and Oregon has experienced the highest number of micro-distillery openings as these are generally more relaxed states.


All-thought the majority of these micro distillers are involved in the production of Aquavit, cognac, fruit based spirits, gin and vodka because of the straight to bottle production, some have produced or are producing whisky and moonshine and are featured here

Since We started this project there has been a considerable increase in the growth of craft distillers producing whiskey


I will have to work out a linking navigation strategy that will evolve as the new distilleries are added -


Please bare with me as I complete the work all the craft distillery links will be available via the drop down menu  on the left hand side menu.


Because of the large number of expressions produced I don't have space to index them all, so I have concentrated on indexing the distillery and putting expression boxes at the top of each distillery page.
