Faces of Omaha is an annual sponsored publication that introduces a variety of “faces,” local industry leaders and experts, to the community. This exclusive publication was carefully cultivated​,​ so only one person and company per business category is invited to participate.

In the publishing industry, this sort of publication is known as “native advertising.” Native advertising is a unique form of sponsored content produced by editorial staff in conjunction with advertisers. The end result is an enjoyable book that has value to both the readers and advertisers.

Everyone featured in the book is truly the “face” of their field. Our sales team spent considerable time cultivating this list.

The following pages introduce more than 100 people and companies, the leaders in their respective areas of expertise, who stand ready to serve their community.

Cut Spike was incorporated in 2008 and hasn’t yet stopped growing. “We’re still small, but we’re growing,” says Jason Payne, co-owner and president. “Just a few years ago we only had 12 barrels in-house, now we have 150 barrels.” They also recently added two more whiskeys and launched distribution in both Colorado and Michigan.

What Payne describes as an “outward growth” is simply proof of Cut Spike’s popularity in the Omaha area and beyond. They do things a little differently at Cut Spike. “We’re proud to make 100 percent of our whiskey in-house,” says Payne. “We’re the only one doing that in Nebraska.” Their premium hand-crafted vodka, barrel aged rum, award-winning whiskey, and well-attended craft distillery tours make them a favorite in the area. 

Cut Spike’s mission is to deliver artisanal, handcrafted spirits. They may have started small, but their outward growth may prove to spread their impressive offerings far beyond what Cut Spike anticipated—because that’s what happens when a distillery puts great thought and focus into what they do.
