It all started with a group of great friends sitting around a fire pit, enjoying some cocktails, and discussing life’s journey.

The conversation focused on what we all wanted to be when we “grew up”. Here we were, a bunch of 30 year old professionals discussing how we envisioned what the rest of our careers would look like.

I had been working in the brewing industry for 15 years. As a brewer, it’s a natural progression to dabble in distilling. So, a few years back I bought a still and started to home distill. I immediately fell in love with distilling!

Growing up, my parents were always supportive and encouraged each of their children to follow careers that they enjoyed. They told each of us to do something that we were proud of and not look back on life and regret not taking chances.

So, as I shared my passion of brewing and distilling with my friends, the “starting my own distillery” seed was planted. After a few years, I took the leap of faith and followed my passion for distilling. I don’t want to look back on life and regret not doing something I’m passionate about.

I’m proud of the spirits that we’re producing. We’re a grain to bottle distillery and I hope that we can be a part of your life’s journey and the many memories to come.
