Atlanta Bourbon Company is an independent craft distillery. Craft is a consumer-led movement mostly known from the craft beer industry. There’s been a broad shift to sell more craft items that are premium quality and not mass produced, often made and sold locally. In 2015 craft spirits retail sales reached about $2.4 billion. The growing popularity of craft spirits has led to significant growth rates (2015 ca. 27.4% compound annual growth) and of course to deal-making opportunities.
