Our Recent Craft Spirits Work

By Tony Vengrove

In addition to the Innovation and Creative Leadership project work Miles Finch Innovation performs for clients up and down the east coast, we are proud of the marketing and branding engagements we have with CT-local startup businesses.

Over the past two years, we enjoyed participating in the emerging craft-spirits movement taking place in Connecticut. Here are some examples of our recent work.


Litchfield Distillery, Litchfield, CT:

We are the agency of record for Litchfield Distillery. We partnered to develop their branding strategy and positioning, helped to create their “Batchers’ philosophy” and Spirit of Hard Work™ tagline, and designed all 10 of their bottle labels. We proudly continue our partnership today, providing marketing, promotional and PR support of their award-winning spirits.



Mine Hill Distillery, Roxbury, CT:

We’re helping this new distillery get off the ground by designing their brand identity, logo and packaging labels. Mine Hill Distillery is located on the historic Roxbury Station property in Roxbury, CT and is chock full of interesting local history. Look for Mine Hill to start filling bottles and open the doors to their distillery in early 2017–the distillery is shaping up to be absolutely beautiful.



Connecticut Spirits Trail:

The newly formed CT Spirits Trail is comprised of fine craft spirits makers from all parts of the state of Connecticut. We were thrilled to create the logo and look forward to visiting all the distilleries ourselves!

If you’re a CT-based business in need of brand identity and marketing support, we’d be happy to tell you more about our services. When it comes to marketing and branding, we choose to work with Connecticut businesses only. Our mission is to help local companies grow and succeed so they can create jobs and help our wonderful state rebound from its current economic condition.

Advocating Innovation on NYBERG

By Tony Vengrove

I had the pleasure of joining Ann Nyberg on her show to discuss innovation and the challenges facing our great state, Connecticut. There are many issues and opportunities to consider and we only scratched the surface. But, I’m encouraged by the amazing community of entrepreneurs and change agents that are collaborating to make a difference. Working together to build community and a bigger collective brain is the only way we’ll make a meaningful impact.

Ann is a true advocate for sharing the stories and work of innovators–it’s clear she cares about helping make a difference. I encourage you to sign up for her Network Connecticut newsletter or business directory.
