John Sorgini

In full transparency, I’m not a whiskey drinker, nor am I an expert on such spirits. But John Sorgini’s story from my one-time corporate lawyer to retired Air Force Colonel to spirit entrepreneur has me intrigued.

“…You know, I thought about this for years. I visited other distilleries and I went to Bourbon school, tried to learn some things about it, and put all those pieces together…I knew I wanted  to make something, rather than a service…I looked into it for so long, my wife was, like, either do it or stop talking about it. And we just decided to do it…”
