Meet our Head Distiller CALEY SHOEMAKER

Caley oversees all phases of our production. Not to mention, she is one of only a handful of female distillers to lead operations for a major American spirit brand. Caley got her start in craft spirits distilling at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, where she immersed herself in every aspect of the production process, from the sourcing of raw ingredients to distillation and bottling. 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 recipes.
