The Maryland Distillers Guild is the non-profit trade association for Maryland distillers, a community of craft producers, dedicated to developing quality spirits. The guild is tasked with promoting growing, and protecting the Maryland distilling industry. The organization also hosts numerous events throughout the year, including the Maryland Spirits Showcase scheduled for March 20th, 2016 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry in Baltimore, Maryland.
As the state’s leading distilling association, the Maryland Distillers Guild needed a new online presence that would better reflect the professionalism of the industry, the organization, and its membership. The new website needed to accommodate multiple administrators and editors, provide detailed information about more the many distilleries across the state of Maryland, and also offer legislative information and resources to its members.
Built on the WordPress platform, the new Maryland Distillers Guild website includes complete content management, social media integrations, a responsive layout, an interactive map of Maryland distilleries, and detailed information about each of its member companies. The site also includes private members sections where distilleries can share information and discuss legislative and industry news, post classified ads, and participate in member forums.
All of us at DatAchieve were drunk with happiness that we got the new marylandspirits.org website design right on the first shot, but we’ve never been ones to drown our sorrows in whiskey—it spoils the flavor.
