Arizona Distilling Company
The Arizona Distilling Company is a Tempe based micro distillery specializing in hand crafted spirits. Each bottle is made with fine ingredients from around the state. Founded in 2012, they are one of the first hand crafted distilleries in Arizona. Copper City Bourbon, making its debut in 2014, was the first legal bourbon to be produced in Arizona since prohibition. Today, they feature seven spirits and have an array of awards behind them. They certainly have made a splash.
