This husband and wife team are passionate about family, community and simple living. These values are reflected throughout the distillery from family members volunteering at the distillery to locals hanging out for good conversations. But, the real show case of the love, passion and simplicity is Dave and the big ole’ copper still that he built with his own hands. You will quickly learn Dave’s passion for making the quality whiskey using simple old fashion ways.
Owner and founder, Dave McGlothern, is the master distiller at Bad Dog Distillery. Dave started learning the science of distilling at a young age. He was intrigued after witnessing some old fashion whiskey making.
Fast forward 35 years, Dave along with his wife Shelly built his own distillery. Being true to his values, he did not buy an “off-the-shelf” still. No, Dave used his craftsman metal working skills and built his own.
Dave’s curiosity for distilling has turned into a passion to make the best whiskey. He delights working with different grains to create unique blends that are full flavored. Dave’s boldness to experiment using non-conventional grains will undoubtedly produce award winning spirits
