From a handful of craft distilleries a decade ago to new operations cropping up regularly to join hundreds of others, today’s artisan spirits movement has no shortage of activity.

“Within the last eight to 10 years or so we have been seeing craft spirits and distilleries pop up all over the U.S. I started really seeing it about then and it has grown tremendously since,” said Cris Dehlavi, head bartender at M Restaurant in Columbus and Ohio brand ambassador for Cooper Spirits.
