We’re elated to announce that Distillery has again been honored on the Inc. 5000! The 2018 ranking, published August 15, revealed that Distillery’s growth is holding strong, earning us a place on the prestigious list for the second year running. (Last year marked Distillery’s impressive debut as a member of the lnc. 5000.) We couldn’t be more thrilled about the recognition, as it testifies to the fact that all our hard work, investments, and persistence over the past year are continuing to take our company in the right direction.
The Inc. 5000, now in its 37th year, is the most prestigious annual ranking of the United States’ fastest-growing private companies. Industry leaders such as Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, Yelp, Zillow, and LinkedIn first gained national exposure as Inc. 5000 honorees.
In reflecting on the honor, Distillery CEO and Founder Andrey Kudievskiy said, “I share this honor with everyone at Distillery. This achievement is a credit to everything they do every day. Every day, they work hard to bring the brightest ideas, build the best products, and further strengthen the relationships we have with our clients. Every day, I’m thankful to work with such an amazing group of talented, committed people.”
The 2018 Inc. 5000 showcases a highly impressive group of businesses that have made a significant contribution to the continued growth of the US economy. Inc.’s data indicates that this year’s list “shows staggering growth compared with prior lists,” as reflected in the three-year average growth of 538.2 percent and median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1B in 2017, accounting for more than 664,000 jobs over the past three years. That’s no drop in the bucket.

Says Inc. Editor-in-Chief James Ledbetter, “If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice. The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
This year’s Inc. 5000 will be recognized in Inc.’s September issue. Honorees will also be celebrated at the Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala from October 17-19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas.
Last year, Kudievskiy attended the 2017 Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala in Palm Desert, California, to celebrate Distillery’s first year on the list. He greatly enjoyed the black-tie gala and the conference’s many insightful sessions and speakers, as well as the opportunity to meet and network with the other honorees.
While the past two years have been fairly exciting for Distillery, we promise never to let the accolades go to our heads and distract us from our goals and priorities. At the core of our business, we’re hard workers who are committed to our clients’ success. For us, that’s what matters most of all.
