Two micro-distilleries set up shop in Columbus last year, and we love them both equally. Granted, we were bound to get behind any trend that put homegrown booze in our backyard, but both Middle West Spirits and Watershed Distillery have the artisan know-how to craft delicious product after delicious product.

Watershed's gin has become a staple in our night-out cocktails, and when we're not drinking Middle West's Oyo vodka, we're enjoying the taste of their other liquors in seasonal ice-cream flavors at Jeni's.

We're looking forward to see what new spirits these two release this year. Our glasses are ready.
