Distillers Head to Capitol Hill to Urge Support for Spirits Tax Cut  

Robert Mueller may have garnered the most attention from this nation’s capital this past week, but the former special counsel was far from the only important matter in Washington D.C.
At the same time as Mueller, more than 150 distillers from around the country gathered in Washington, D.C. for the distilled spirits industry’s 10th annual Public Policy Conference, co-hosted by the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States and the American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA).
Meet Dan McKee, the New Master Distiller at Michter’s
Dan McKee has big shoes to fill.
In April he received promotion to Master Distiller at Michter’s Distillery in Louisville, following the retirement of one of his mentors, former Master Distiller Pamela Heilmann. Heilmann set precedent for women leaders in whiskey distilling, and had a reputation for her old-school work ethic and unflinching commitment to quality.
McKee first worked under Heilmann at Booker Noe Distillery, and then followed her to Michter’s. Having learned from her and other industry greats in various ascending distillery roles (including his start at Jim Beam), McKee now moves up to Master Distiller with a wealth of industry experience. We recently caught up with McKee to talk whiskey and what’s next for Michter’s, as he takes over the production reigns for this global brand.

“We had a hell of a challenge last year when our president left. We went searching for a new one for the whole year. I felt bad for the last chairman, how everything basically had to be put on hold during that search. Basically, this year, I want us to get back on track,” says Sydney Ross, Chairman of the WSWA.
For the full interview, look for the Sept/Oct issue of Beverage Dynamics magazine.
