COLUMBUS – What do you get when you mix Watershed Bourbon and Winans chocolates? Bourbon Cherry Cordials of course—now available for purchase at all Winans stores, online and at Watershed Distillery’s bottle shop—just in time for the holidays.

   The candy maker soaks maraschino cherries in bourbon for three months and then coats them in Winans family-recipe fondant, made with Watershed Bourbon. Each cherry is then covered with Winans premium dark or milk chocolate and topped with a white chocolate drizzle. The retail price is $34.95 per pound.

   “We are committed to supporting local businesses by making our chocolates and coffee with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible,” shares Wilson Reiser, CEO of Winans Chocolates + Coffees. “We’re big fans of Watershed so this partnership was really a no-brainer for us. We can’t wait for people to experience these Bourbon Cherry Cordials.”

   “Since our inception in 2010, Watershed has truly championed the idea of building up the community and supporting those who support us,” adds Greg Lehman, CEO of Watershed Distillery. “Working with other brands who value that sort of commitment as well is always a priority for us, and we are grateful to Winans for the partnership.”


   Bourbon Cherry Cordials are now available at all Winans retail locations, Watershed Distillery,
and online at

   Now in 21 locations, Winans Chocolates + Coffees is a family-owned company that has been inspiring moments of joy for over 60 years! Using the original recipes handed down by the original founder, Max Winans, chocolates are handcrafted in Piqua, Ohio using fresh, whole ingredients; never paraffins or waxes. This same care is given to each coffee that is roasted fresh from internationally sourced beans from coffee growers around the world.

   Watershed Distillery is the largest independent Ohio distillery and producer of award-winning craft bourbons, gins, vodka and a variety of specialty spirits. Founded in 2010 by Greg Lehman, Watershed Distillery was inspired by the vision of creating great spirits and shared experiences that bring people together.
