Artisan Spirit: Spring 2016

Page 6

THANK YOU. Each issue we take a moment to highlight and thank our sponsors. However, we often forget to mention that these companies are more than just industry vendors vying for attention. There are individuals at these companies that also act as advisors. Each one of them offers more to Artisan Spirit Magazine and the distilling industry than just monetary support or goods and services. They have also provided years of expertise, with the intent to help guide and grow our industry. As always, we are careful to guard the integrity of Artisan Spirit Magazine, which is why we continue to maintain a separation of “church and state” when it comes to content and advertising. Advisors are not directors, and we have been exceedingly lucky to find people and companies in this industry that respect that delineation. The distilling industry could probably survive without associations, guilds, or publications but it couldn’t function without the distilling entrepreneurs or the suppliers that serve them. We are very thankful that these two fundamental groups on opposite sides of the fence have chosen to support what we do at Artisan Spirit Magazine.

WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.
