ST. JAMES BREWERY & DISTILLERY EXPLOSIVE GROWTH, CROWDED MARKET
Global trends favoring the brown liquor category are on the rise. Particularly, Whiskeys. The category is outpacing wine for the first time two years ago and repeating the feat ever since.
As worldwide whiskey sales continue their steady 15-year climb, the market is becoming increasingly saturated by a sea of generic brands and tastes.
With hundreds of brands vying for a share of this nearly $100B market, many of them are lacking a few critical components: people, process and past.

Our Process. Our very special Premium Rye Whiskey is perfected using only the very best quality grains, spring water taken from the source and charred casks.
