BUILDING DISTILLERIES IS OUR PASSION
Devin is a distillery engineer, lead distillery consultant at Distillery Craft Consulting, host of Distilling Craft Podcast, and the brains behind this whole operation. A Licensed Professional Engineer with an MBA from the University of Colorado, Devin found his calling as a distillery engineer early in his life when he began making Apple Brandy as a hobby. Now, Devin is a sought-after distillery consultant who helps others attain their dreams of owning a successful craft distillery.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
While living in Colorado, Devin became interested in starting an apple orchard similar to the ones he knew growing up. During the research phase, Devin found other uses for apples such as cider and mead, but fell in love with the process of making Apple Brandy. While working on his MBA, Devin started his own distillery as part of a final project and his dissertation. Devin managed to generate an astounding half a million dollars and win several pitch competitions for his distillery. After running a successful distillery for a few years, Devin realized he had more to offer the industry. Devin currently is the host of Distilling Craft Podcast, a podcast dedicated to distilling spirits, and a distillery consultant, helping others attain their dreams of owning their own distilleries.
