Tempe, Arizona (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
As a veteran blackjack dealer, Jason Grossmiller understands the art of taking a calculated risk and the reward of a successful gamble. Now, the Phoenix area will benefit from Grossmiller laying it all on the line with the opening of Arizona Distilling Company, a truly local premium micro-distillery set to open in July. If the initial interest shown on the Distillery’s Facebook page continues to grow, Grossmiller’s gamble looks like it will be a solid wager that will pay off for the Distillery as well as local area communities.
Grossmiller, is an Arizona native with strong ties and a deep commitment to Arizona and the Phoenix area communities. Their deep allegiance is apparent in Arizona Distilling Company’s distinct focus on manufacturing spirits that are truly local from grain to bottle, and a dedication to the pure form of spirit production that does not rely on neutral grain spirits.
Arizona Distilling Company will use locally grown wheat, corn and barley in its production process, making this the first and only homegrown, locally sourced micro-distillery in Arizona. By purchasing local grain, the Distillery supports area farmers and drives local reinvestment, a sustainability strategy essential to Grossmiller.
Pure, local, high quality products are the hallmark of Grossmiller’s business. Arizona Distilling Company’s quality control is very “hands-on” and accomplished by tasting the product as it comes off the still. Says Grossmiller, “Only when the taste is right, will we make “cuts” to the product – precisely at the point where the timing and taste come together. This optimizes the taste. We control the quality from the farm to the bottle. We’re not taking any short cuts.” Initially, production will be limited to whiskey with plans to expand product lines in the future.
Grossmiller is also the Arizona Distilling Company’s Master Distiller, and a graduate of the practical distilling program offered by industry leader Dry Fly Distillery in Spokane, WA . Grossmiller also completed various other distilling training programs in the U.S. The Arizona Distilling Company facility is located at 508 W. First Street, Tempe, two blocks west of Mill Avenue across from Tempe Town Lake.
