  • Economic impact of Missouri's distilling industry

    • "Taking Farm and Forest to the Glass" was funded by the Missouri Department of Agriculture – Missouri Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority. Phase 1 measured the economic contribution of the state's distillery industry and created 2019 baseline data using secondary sources and a distiller survey. Phase 2 of the project will examine opportunities to increase the total value distillers bring to the state's economy.
