Crafted Artisan Meadery in Suffield Township has signed a distribution deal with Cavalier Distributing and its meads will be available in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Florida.

“Partnering with a trusted distributor such as Cavalier that has a firm understanding of the craft beverage market makes all the difference” Crafted owner Kent Waldeck said. “Quality in, quality out,” he added. “We pride ourselves on our approach to making mead and Cavalier reflects a similar hands-on, local approach to their business.”

Crafted Artisan Meadery opened in June 2012. It has seen dramatic growth since, Waldeck said. “The quality of our ingredients and end products are critical to us. As we experience this upward trajectory of growth, we will be keeping a keen eye on ensuring that we hold true to our own standards.”
