  • John Copeland

    John Copeland

    CFO


    After burning through the nest egg his previous career in private label candles left him, John joined the team in 2013. He’ll tell you he joined for the thrill, but we all know he’s here for the gin.

    Favorite Cocktail: Gin and Tonic

  • Norma Lindsay

    Norma Lindsay

  • 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

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.”
