Bruce Boeko - President, Founder and head distiller
After a rewarding 20-year career in human identity testing (focused on forensic DNA testing), Bruce took a break to return to school to earn his MBA and start his first entrepreneurial venture: Nashville Craft Distillery. At Nashville Craft, Bruce focuses on distilling small-batch craft spirits using quality natural ingredients that are sourced locally whenever possible. He believes in supporting local farmers, sourcing grains, honey and sorghum for his spirits from farms in Middle Tennessee.
An experienced applied scientist, Bruce has been a homebrewer and winemaker for more than 25 years. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a master’s of business administration from Tennessee Technological University. Bruce completed training at two distilling schools: The Distilled Spirits Epicenter, Louisville, KY; and Kothe Distilling Technologies, Chicago, IL.
