Ohio grain to glass producer of whiskey, vodka, and gin
Middle West was founded in 2008, and we opened our distillery for commercial production in 2010. Building on four generations of distilling traditions, we added our own deep experience in marketing and manufacturing to focus on elevating the distinctive flavors of the Ohio River Valley. Our artisan spirits honor our roots; and reflect our originality as makers, our integrity as producers, and our passion for the craft of producing spirits from grain to glass.
Our state-of-the-art craft distillery is located just north of downtown Columbus, Ohio. It’s where our whiskeys, bourbons, vodkas, and gins start with non-GMO, food-grade materials to ensure the best possible spirits. We originally distill, age, and package all of our spirits here in the heartland of Ohio.
The Middle West Spirits Whiskeys include our Straight Wheat, Straight Bourbon, and Straight Rye. Our OYO Vodkas feature the Character Vodka, Stone Fruit Vodka, and Honey Vanilla Bean Vodka. Vim & Petal Dry Gin showcases a wheat base spirit infused with 18 botanicals.
