Middle West Spirits is an urban distillery using all Ohio wheat in vodkas, whiskey
Set in the heart of Ohio, Middle West Spirits is an artisan micro-distillery that draws inspiration from its surroundings. The company’s OYO brand Vodka, OYO Honey Vanilla Bean Vodka, and OYO Whiskey are made solely from Ohio’s soft red winter wheat. The company is the first commercial distillery to make vodkas and whiskeys exclusively from Ohio’s unique wheat—highlighting unique flavors that are distinctive for their Ohio origin.
The Walston Group, LLC CEO and founder Natalie Walston has extensive experience in media, public and government relations in central Ohio. She is the former director of communications for the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. Her rapidly growing company was founded in August of this year. Clients include comedian, politician and real estate developer Drew Hastings. The Walston Group, LLC also provides social media management and crisis communications services.
“Natalie’s experience in Ohio’s agriculture industry makes her a perfect fit for our business, which prides itself on creating a more direct connection between the consumer and the producer, by sourcing local, and by celebrating flavors that are authentically Ohio,” said Brady Konya, principal and co-founder of Middle West Spirits.
The company is preparing for an expanding line of products, with additional seasonal spirits and whiskey varieties to be released in 2012.
