The Team with a Mission
We are driven by friendship, passion and authenticity. We strive to celebrate the history and traditions of those who came before us. We know genuine bonds create remarkable results. From the ingredients we use, to the team members we hire, these core values and unbridled atmosphere are at the heart of every decision. Our goal remains simple, to produce premium quality, hand-crafted spirits worthy of their heritage, one small batch at a time.

Our Whiskey Widows
Everything in distilling takes time. Small businesses require extra effort. As much as friendship is at the core of our business, love is at the root of friendship. We want to publicly thanks our significant others for their sacrifices in our pursuits. We know we work long hours, at weird times and won’t shut up about what we do. And you all lovingly put up with it. To our Whiskey Widows, your support and love are the backbone of this company. So Thank you Eric, Lesley, Sydney, Rebecca, Luke, Sarah, Scott, Karen, Kate and Pat.
