Meaningful connections are the cornerstone of the Cantilever Distilling Company’s brand. Drawing from a fascinating and fabled local history, Cantilever Distilling Company is named for the Historic Cantilever Bridge – a lifeline for smugglers of spirits in the 1920s.

Inspired by the intriguing story of the quaint town where the distillery is located, it only seemed right to nestle elements of this ephemera into the brand and packaging design. From the railroad maps debossed on the labels to the embossed bridge on the custom glass, this brand and bottle is full of creative connections.
