    Former, Distillery Supervisor


    “My confidence was grown at the University of Kentucky through education and experience, and I was able to transfer and apply that every day in the distillery at Buffalo Trace. We were always in expansion mode, and that allowed me to utilize my engineering background in my early days. As an early career professional, I was attracted to the history of the distillery and wanted to be part of a successful organization.”
