Cleveland Label Joins Spirited Race For “Quickie Whiskeys”

On a recent Friday night, Clevelanders squeeze shoulder-to-shoulder inside the Market Garden Brewery and Distillery. They’re here for the launch party of Cleveland Whiskey.  It’s available straight on the rocks, or in a number of cocktails.  Sam McNulty is Market Garden’s proprietor. “People are loving it.  The only problem is, we’re running out of it right now.  So we’re running to the store and getting some more.”
