Watershed Distillery x FocusCFO


Founded in 2010, Watershed Distillery's quality spirits have put them on the map. Today, Watershed produces the number one selling Ohio-made bourbon and gin portfolios, along with an award-winning craft vodka and a variety of specialty spirits. FocusCFO is proud to have partnered with Watershed Distillery to provide them with strategic financial guidance for their journey toward sustainable, transferrable business value.


Here is what Watershed Distillery had to say about their experience working with CFO Jim Zins

"Things that FocusCFO does well for us:
    • FocusCFO provides a high-level financial mind with a commitment that is consistent with what a small business can afford and matches our needs.
    • Watershed is a fast-growing business that requires so much capital invested in bourbon for the future. Focus CFO provides financial expertise and guidance to navigate the planning needed to do that.
    • Even though Jim is only with us 1 day per week, he is a critical part of our leadership team. It actually feels like he is a full-time employee.
    • Jim is an expert in his field but he is also able to tap into a network of experts who specialize in a variety of subjects - tax, exit strategy, M&A, COVID relief, etc. Jim and his network stay up-to-date on all the important laws that affect our business and we have unlimited access to this breadth of knowledge."
