New Spirits Publication

Modern Distillery Age is a new weekly e-newsletter for the US spirits business.

Modern Distillery Age began publication in December 2009 for all those involved in the U.S. spirits business.

The new publication will research and report on breaking news, distillery and executive profiles, marketing and promotional campaigns, new product releases, personnel appointments — and the occasional light-hearted story or two relating to the spirits business. Tasting panels will be added.

Modern Distillery Age is designed and formatted like a magazine and sent once a week as a PDF attachment to subscribers. Subscriptions are $195 a year for 50 issues.

Modern Distillery Age is published and edited by Gregg Glaser, who has covered the spirits and beer businesses since 1994 as an editor, columnist and reporter for many consumer and trade publications. Modern Distillery Age takes its name and format from Modern Brewery Age, a similar publication that’s been covering the beer business since 1933.

The first six issues of Modern Distillery Age are available on the website (; the Samples tab on the left side). Weekly issues will no longer be posted to the website, and Modern Distillery Age will be paid subscription only.
