When Woodford Reserve began operations in 1996 it was among the first of the modern micro distilleries.  Since then more than 1,300 micro distilleries have sprouted up across the United States.  These entrepreneurs needed information and guidance in all sorts of areas so I became a consultant offering assistance in all areas of the business, i.e., spirits production, distillery layout and design, warehousing, processing, bottling, shipping, government oversite, creation of nuanced spirits, operations management, spirits evaluations, brand promotions, brand presentations and project management.  Making whiskey is not that hard.  Our ancestors made it over 300 years ago.  The difficult part is making exceptional whiskey consistently.
