In her talk, Marianne traces her path to becoming the first female Master Distiller in Kentucky. Growing up she always considered herself an artful creative type. But she ultimately chose a career path that is heavily scientific and analytical. At Castle & Key, she is currently blending it all together, with a principled approach that combines imaginative thinking, scientific innovation and reverence for the traditions of spirit distillation together. At the foundation of it is a respect for the essentials—the elements (including Kentucky limestone water), the ingredients, the people and places that make Kentucky an unrivaled place for distillation.
