ADI conference gears up for a big year in Baltimore

We are now just one week away from American Distilling Institute’s annual conference, which is heading to Baltimore, MD. It seems like distilleries are popping up all over Maryland, which makes it a prime location to host the growing ADI Event.

The agenda looks delightful and there are a number of hands-on classes, presentations as well as tours of some of the local distilleries. Come check out the Briess line of ingredients at booth #428 where we’ll be sampling whiskeys made with Briess specialty malts for enticing and unique flavor. Visit Mike Killelea, Mercedes Hemmer and myself to talk about authentic, made in the USA, ingredients for your American whiskeys and spirits. Our made-in-the-USA distillers and handcrafted specialty malts, malt extracts, pregelatinized flakes, high yield flours and raw grains are fresh, high quality, consistent and the perfect match for authentic American whiskeys and all the spirits in your portfolio.
