Gibson Master Distiller
Master Distiller Lloyd Keel began his distilling career in the 1970s and has spent the past 50 years experimenting with various grains and processes. He has perfected the art of making premium, small-batch, single-barrel spirits including George Gibson Rye Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, and Corn Vodka.
According to Keel, “Making the best requires time, a lot of effort, good ingredients – and a great recipe helps a lot, too.” At Gibson Distillery, they make sure to include all of the above.
