“I’m so excited to have yet another reason to make return trips to visit the state I have such strong ties to and where numerous close friends and family members live,” said Lynne Dant, Distiller and Chief Operating Officer at Log Still Distillery. “Over countless years, I have been able to appreciate the many ‘faces’ of Ohio and the major cities that give the state its own uniqueness; now I can share something from my own family with this special state – some very fine bourbons.”
