    Distilleries, Master Distillers....

    I need everyone’s help with a little cheat sheet. I’m trying real hard to find the time to go to the festival, and I don’t want to embarrass myself. Can anyone give me the names of all the distilleries and their Master Distillers, as well as any other names I should know?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Looking forward to seeing y’all again if I make it.

    Wikipedia lists Fred Noe as the current master distiller of Beam, saying that Jerry Dalton retired this year.

    Yes, but Fred Noe is not the Master Distiller.
    I can't remember the name.

    That's what I thought too...but can't think of who else they might have put in the position...
