Who We Are. Welcome, and thank you for stopping by! We’re a small craft spirits company with a distillery in Bowling Green, KY and one in the works in Nashville, TN.
Our Spirits. We make very small batches of spirits – just a few cases at a time – in our pot stills. Everything’s done by hand, from production to bottling.
Craft Distilling. An emerging movement, craft distilleries are small scale operations similar to a microbrewery. Also called micro-distilleries, these hands-on operations make spirits in small batches, often producing less in a year than larger distilleries bottle in an hour. The large continuous stills used by major producers are eschewed for hand-operated pot stills.
Pot stills require more labor but allow the craft distiller fine control over flavors and give broad room for experimentation. This allows craft distillers to focus on local ingredients and unusual techniques to make small volume batches of high-quality spirits.
Orange Ltd of Nashville is a privately owned and operated direct marketing and sales firm. They are outsourced by different Fortune 500 companies to become the face behind their logos. Their target consumer demographic is the local small and mid size businesses in the greater middle Tennessee area. The firm is proud to staff professional and personal representatives that are a model example of business ethics, integrity, and leadership.
