Queenstown, Maryland (September 6, 2023) – Tobacco Barn Distillery of Hollywood, Maryland has recently been awarded the Top Farmer-Distiller award, best Maryland whiskey and gold medal for their Single Barrel Bourbon in the 2023 Heartland Whiskey Competition. For the fourth year, the competition was managed by the American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA) which judged craft whiskeys from across the nation. State corn marketing associations, such as the Maryland Grain Producers Association, sponsored the event which took place in St. Louis, MO.
Tobacco Barn Distillery is a farm to bourbon business located in St. Mary’s County providing bourbon and other products at their tasting room and select retail locations throughout Maryland. Three good friends – Dan, Sean, and Scott – started Tobacco Barn Distillery in December of 2015 and offer very limited quantities of their single-barrel bourbon. For the bourbon aficionados, they will soon be releasing a bourbon that is Bottled In Bond. Everything about their products is LOCAL! The Distillery grows their own corn, and utilizes locally sourced rye.
Scott Sanders, Director of Bourbon Relationships for Tobacco Barn Distillery is very proud to represent Maryland and honored to win a national award. “This award is an acknowledgement that Craft Distilleries are producing some of the best bourbons and whiskies in America” said Scott. “We have a lot of new and exciting products growing in popularity, and available in the coming months. Be sure to stop by our small town and check out the Nation’s best Farmer-Distiller.”
Congratulations to Tobacco Barn Distillery and their team in Hollywood for this great honor!
