     For as long as I can remember I'v e always been inspired to test the boundaries of what is possible and try to find creative solutions that stray from the beaten path in an effort to create something truly unique.  That same drive still pushes me to try new things, to find different approaches and methods for each design and each product.       

     Years ago, while looking for my next endeavor, it struck me that while it seemed that most everyone was opening craft breweries at the time, why not take a different path and use that same local feeling in regards to spirits?  Most of what was available on shelves at that time were products packaged and created by massive national companies that were more interested in the bottom line than they were about crafting a great product.  While that obviously made us the underdog and the little guy fighting against the industrial giants of the business, I have never been one to shy away from a fight.  So I threw myself into the ring searching for ways to create something better.  This is the aspiration of Rusted Crow, not to be just another bottle with a label slapped on it, but to make each product a piece of art in its own right, to pay attention to the details and to find any way possible to keep slugging it out with the big guys. 

     From using only optimum local ingredients and processes to the creation of a unique brand and intricately designed and illustrated labels, I wanted to leave no stone unturned in taking the care to make sure that each bottle is crafted with the same attention to detail that our very first was.  I want you to feel a personal connection to the local American history rooted in the story behind each of our products; to trust us as your companion on your greatest adventures and in all the good times in life.  I want you to pick up each bottle and have a good friend or loved one come to mind who you just know would love that bottle to be on their shelf at home.  My goal is that when you walk through our doors you'll walk back out speechless at our eye for detail, our commitment to quality, and our vision for Rusted Crow as a great American product dedicated to excellence.
