Rum on the Road: Miami, FL

Rum on the Road: Miami, FL

Let’s be honest: the City of Miami and Miami Beach need no introduction. Beaches. Bars that never close. A culture of celebration. As different from our mountain town home as a place can be (though we do like to celebrate ‘round these parts). Karen visited Miami over the winter, happily trading snow for sand and participating in the Miami Rum Congress. (When you live in the Rockies, there’s nothing like wearing sandals in winter.) Read on for the highlights of her visit.

Shaking Up the Craft Spirits World, The Women's Distillery Guild Advocates for Gender Diversity and Advancement

Crested Butte, Colo., May 8, 2018 – When Karen Hoskin, owner of Montanya Distillersand a founding member of Ladies of American Distilling (LOAD), took over as interim leader of the organization in February, one of the first things she did was change the name to The Women’s Distillery Guild (WGD).

“I did a survey of the 700 people who were involved with the predecessor organization, and two out of three asked for a name change,” said Hoskin. “They also wanted a membership non-profit organization and a clear mission with state and city chapters. So with this input, those have been my first tasks. It all came together pretty quickly.”
