Maker's Mark Distillery is pleased to announce the hiring of Greg Davis as our Director of Distillery Operations! Greg is replacing the vacancy left by our friend Denny Potter who left our little distillery in Loretto back in March, for an opportunity to work at Cruzan Rum in St. Croix, USVI.
Greg has extensive experience in the bourbon industry and is coming to us from the Tom Moore Distillery (formerly known as Barton's), where he has been the Master Distiller for the last 10 years. While at Tom Moore, Greg Davis was instrumental in creating the company's first premium bourbon, 1792 Ridgemont Reserve, and also making improvements to the operation that resulted in significant effeciencies and cost savings.

I guess that makes my signed bottle of 1792 a collector's item now, eh? Ebay here I come...:lol:

Anyword on who is replacing Greg at TM?

He went from Master Distiller to Dir. of Operations ... I would think he has less power over those decisions.

Maker's already has an expansion plan in place, which they are executing in the fullness of time.

I think this has more to say about what going to be happening at Tom Moore than Markers Mark. You just don't get up and walk away from a master distillers job.

My thought exactly.
