Welcome.   A few years ago, it became evident that the transformation of the whiskey industry, and spirits as a whole, would occur via the burgeoning craft distilling movement.  Today, we see the transformation has begun and the small, craft-spirit movement is creating an impact on all the tiers of production, distribution and consumption.   It may well define how we think about spirits for at least the next generation.

 

I started this company

  1. for the small brand: creating a narrative to elevate their position and grow market share, to activate it at all 3 levels of the supply chain so that it can compete and endure. 
  2. for the small sales organization, training them in hand-sell techniques to elevate their game in the competitive world of brown spirits and turn them into trusted advisors;
  3. for consumers as a whole,  to bring them the fun and knowledge of the whiskey and spirits industry;

 with 3 objectives in mind, Its what I call a

"Unified Vision of Knowledge":
