Don and Aeneas Coffey

Recommended Posts

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?

I'm in! He did it. I accept everything that has no irrefutable proof to show it's "not true"

I just read it on the Internet, so it must be true.

Many people don't know this either, but Aeneas Coffey also designed and built a hugely popular do-it-yourself-at-home still sold under the brand name Mr. Coffey, and hired Joe DiMaggio as it's spokesman...

I'm holding out for the never before produced model discovered in the family papers.
