American history runs deep at Indian Creek Distillery. Originally purchased by the Staley family in 1818, the 160-acre farmstead still features the original gristmill in addition to the copper stills that produced their first batches of rye whiskey in 1820. The sixth generation of Staleys continues to operate the distillery, carrying on a family tradition that was interrupted but never crushed by events such as a Civil War-era whiskey tax and Prohibition. "The deepest roots of American whiskey making are now anchored firmly in the rolling terrain of New Carlisle, Ohio," said Whiskey Advocate, "The Staleys and their long distilling legacy endure."
Ever-resistant to change, tradition trumps shortcuts for the Staleys. The distillery still uses the farm's original 1880 grain mill to grind locally grown rye, and, contrary to modern convention, the historic double copper distilling method remains the whiskey-making process of choice. Artisanal creations include a crystalline white whiskey in addition to barrel-aged rye with honeyed sweetness that complements its bold notes of clove and other spices.
Greg Lehman found inspiration to start a distillery in an unlikely place—a volleyball court in Switzerland. While playing there professionally, Greg was struck by the commonness of locally distilled spirits. It resonated with his upbringing in Ohio, where distilleries once thrived before Prohibition made malt liquor America's classiest drink. Upon returning home, Greg and business partner Dave Rigo founded Watershed Distillery, joining the state's heritage of microdistilleries.
Today, the pair mans a 660-gallon custom-made copper still to craft the signature Four Peel Gin, infused with eight botanicals, as well as a vodka that's quadruple-distilled from Midwest-grown corn and a bourbon aged in American oak barrels. Greg and Dave also open their distillery for tours, taking guests through the facility and letting them watch everything from mashing to barreling, depending on the stage of the current batch. A tasting room enables patrons to sample spirits.
Brady Konya and Ryan Lang aren't from Ohio, but they loved the area for its business-friendly community and rich natural resources, and decided Columbus was where they had to build their distillery. The duo's passion for the Midwest colors everything about Middle West Spirits, from the name down to the Ohio-grown soft red winter wheat in their whiskey and award-winning vodka, which they also infuse with honey and vanilla beans or stone fruit. Inside the distillery, which sprawls over 10,000 square feet of open air, Brady and Ryan craft these artisan OYO spirits—named after the original word for the Ohio River Valley, pronounced o-y-o_—in 600-liter pot-and-column stills. Hand-built onsite by German craftsmen using copper, stainless steel, and bits of Saturn's rings, these stills earned Middle West Spirits a place on _Popular Mechanics' 5 of the World's Most-High-Tech Distilleries list.
