Don Coffey, Ph.D., is Executive Vice President of Research, Development and Innovation at MGPI of Indiana, LLC, the distillery that supplies many non-distiller producers both large (Diageo, Pernod) and small (Templeton, Old Scout). I'm starting a rumor that he is a direct descendant of Aeneas Coffey, inventor of the continuous still (1830). I've talked to Don about this and he's fine with the rumor. All we can say for sure is that we don't know it's not true.

Who's with me?
