"There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."
- Nelson Mandela
My life as a chef and restaurant executive never felt small, but never felt big enough to suit me. So while nearing 50 what to do next? What challenges lay ahead? Where would the real passion be? What would be the life I was capable of living?
While Jennifer and I pondered this one fall evening in 2009 over a glass of exceptional wine she stumbled upon a full page ad for Tito’s Vodka in a magazine………….hmmm….a spark, an idea. “What about distilling?” she threw out. Something stirred, something moved deep down in us both and we knew she had found the answer. In the days and weeks that followed all the answers flowed smoothly. “What would we create?” Bourbon of course. It is the true American spirit and a road less traveled. It drew us in. “How would we do it?” In our own unique style, our way, owing nothing to anyone no matter what, never settling for less than we are capable of.
Four years later we introduced our small batch Bourbon to the rest of the world.
We are proud to say it is more than well received. We are proud to say it is exceptional. We are proud to say it is full of passion. We are proud to share it with folks like you, our friends.
