Meet our Head Distiller CALEY SHOEMAKER

Caley is responsible for overseeing all phases of our production. She is one of a handful of female distillers to lead operations for a major American spirits brand. Caley joins us from Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, where she quickly worked her way up under Head Distiller Rob Dietrich’s wing. Caley immersed herself in every aspect of the production process, from the sourcing of grains to distillation and bottling. As she leads Hangar 1 Vodka into its next phase, Caley is excited to test out limited batches and new flavors of vodka with the hangar’s pilot still. Caley describes herself as a “spirits nerd” and is fascinated by how the chemistry of distilling affects the quality, texture and flavor of the final product. She is endlessly inspired by the area’s abundant seasonal ingredients. When she’s not visiting local farmers’ markets, Caley can be found honing her photography skills or experimenting with new cocktail recipes.
