 Beginning with Colorado, Distiller’s List will facilitate delivery of craft products from around the country using its national network of retailers. Distiller’s List aims to address inefficiencies within the spirit industry by connecting craft distillers with consumers in one seamless platform. With its in-house production company, Heavy Pour Productions, Distiller’s List produces editorial reviews, product photography, and intimate video coverage that tell the stories behind partner brands and their teams. Content is housed alongside the digital marketplace to help consumers engage with the country’s top craft distilleries and learn more about new and emerging spirits brands before purchase.

“There is demand for building deeper connections between a flourishing class of distillers—many of them with unique stories and approaches to their craft—with the end consumers,” says Jarka Duba, Distiller’s List founder and CEO. “So many choices exist today amongst high-quality, small-batch spirits. Our mission is to help tell the stories behind these craft producers beyond their geographical regions, and ultimately open new channels of distribution.”

Leading the charge on Distiller’s List with Duba are co-founders Nelson Riley, director of technology, Zach Berman, vice president of business development, Marina Chiasson, director of operations, Oliver Sharpe, executive producer/host, and Andrew Curtis, senior digital content producer. A brand of ZG Collective, LLC, Distiller’s List has retained public relations and media agency Backbone Media to manage its media planning, public relations strategy and outreach.
