New Distillery Law Expected To Expand Craft Spirits Market in Montgomery County

Diners may soon see more craft liquor products served in Montgomery County bars and restaurants.

A state law that went into effect Saturday allows small-scale distillers to self-distribute their products directly to alcohol license holders in the state and regional spirits producers say the change will help them break into the county market.

“Montgomery County, I’ll say, should be one of the best craft liquor markets in the state given the demographics and the proximity to Washington, D.C., and we’ll see in a couple of months if it comes to fruition,” Kevin Atticks, executive director of the Maryland Distillers Guild, said Tuesday.
