Middle West Spirits Expands Columbus, Ohio, Operations

Middle West Spirits, a world-class distillery and award-winning producer of spirits, plans to expand its distillery, operational facilities and a 14-acre campus in Columbus, Ohio. The project is expected to create 80 jobs over the next three years.

The investment includes a new 75,000-square-foot distillery, a grain recycling center, packaging and bottling facility and more. The company will also create office space to support growing its headquarters and positioning the site for the possibility of a future hospitality space.

“We are excited about the Alum Creek development and the future of our company. The expansion of our operations allows us to hit capacities, aging goals and the volumes needed to continue to develop our brands and partnership programs,” said Ryan Lang, founder and chief executive officer for Middle West Spirits. “Our team has worked tirelessly over the last 15 years to bring us to this point, and we are excited to start the next chapter of Middle West.”

Middle West Spirits currently produces 15 of its own branded products, including MIDDLE WEST Bourbon, Rye and Wheat Whiskey varietals, with the popular Double Cask Whiskey Collection, OYO vodkas, Vim & Petal and Lux & Umbra gins.

“Middle West Spirits is an Ohio-founded company that continues to expand brands globally with talent from the Columbus Region,” noted J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and chief executive officer. “This investment will revitalize vacant buildings that will be home to new distillery operations and office space and create 80 new jobs.”
