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
