    CFO


    Don has served as CFO for a number of public and private companies, recently joining us from a large company that produces premium ingredients for the spirits industry. So he knows accounting…and alcohol.

    Norma makes the rest of the team look good by ensuring everything tastes right. Its a tough job, but someones got to do it. A former pastry chef, she’s been here from the start.

  • Susie Garvin

    Susie Garvin

    VP of Sales


    Although she has never sold ice to eskimos per se, Susie brokered relationships in many other sectors prior to joining the team in 2010. Now she spends her time taking customers to fancy restaurants–and ensuring the rest of us know exactly what she ordered.

    Favorite Cocktail: Specialty Gin and hard-to-find tonic

Jacob Call

Jacob Call

Master Distiller
Operations Manager


A third generation bourbon distiller, Jacob likes to impress people with fancy words like “rickhouse” and “mashbill.” Ever since he joined us in 2014, he’s been searching for those elusive “honey barrels.”
