Watershed Distillery

After leaving their corporate day jobs, Greg Lehman and Dave Rigo founded Watershed Distillery in 2010. Five years, three stills and 10,000 square feet later, it has quickly become one of the shining stars of the Midwest, featuring grains sourced locally from the Ohio community they were both raised in. And Watershed works with a local Ohio business called Spirited Wax, which upcycles used and empty bottles to make candles! Proceeds from each candle sale benefit a charity very near and dear to the distillery's founders: The Corey Lehman Scholarship Fund. Their entire mission keeps us in good spirits!
