4 Maryland Veteran-Owned Businesses To Support This Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day weekend, Maryland! This holiday exists to honor military personnel who died in service to our country, and it gives us an opportunity to appreciate their sacrifice. There's no better time to support your fellow Maryland veterans, and there are plenty of veteran-owned businesses here in the Old Line state that you can patronize. Here are four of them!

Semper Savage

Summer is just about here, and that means you'll need some good dressing and vinaigrettes for your favorite summer foods! Meats and vegetables just taste better with Semper Savage marinades and sauces, like the balsamic or caesar options. The founder, John Currie, perfected his recipes while serving in the US Marines, and they're all-natural and free of added sugar and additives. The company is based in Waldorf but ships free all through the USA.

Dragon Distillery

Love all things geeky? Love supporting veteran-owned businesses? Love drinking spirits like vodka and bourbon? Well, Dragon Distillery in Frederick is the perfect combination of all three! Unleash your inner wizard by showing off your smarts at trivia night or become a warrior by trying out the in-distillery axe throwing. You can pick up canned cocktails to bring home, too! 

Muddy Girl Leathers

Fine leather products are a cut above. Muddy Girl Leathers, which is based in Hanover, MD, sells everything from bags to wallets to jewelry. You can even get a custom piece for yourself or as a gift for a loved one! And that's not all -- this shop offers wood engraving, too. You can feel great about bringing home something special while also supporting a veteran-owned business.  

Tobacco Barn Distillery

This company is proud to be from Maryland, and every step of the distilling process here is done right here. They know their history, and they're happy to share their knowledge of all things bourbon and whiskey! The owner, Scott Sanders, is a Navy vet who has gone on to share his love of liquor with the rest of us here in Maryland. We're proud to have partnered with them to create some grillmaster-worthy grilling chunks, too.
