Our Master Distiller, Lloyd Keel, began his distilling career in the 70’s learning the craft of distilling. Over the past 50 years he has experimented with many grains and processes to make spirits – some so bad that they had to be used as fire starter and a few so good he kept the recipe for production product. Over time, he has perfected the science and the art of selecting the proper grains, water, and yeast for his creations. He has mastered the art of making the “cuts” and developed his process for making a quality whiskey. His quest for perfection has enabled George Gibson Distilling to launch our premium Small Batch and Single Barrel products. These include the George Gibson Rye Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, and Corn Vodka.
Starting May 4th at 11:00 AM you can purchase up to three 750 ML bottles directly from the distillery.
In the next production year Lloyd will make a sorghum based whiskey that was popular 100 years ago in the South and a triticale whiskey, (a grain that is a cross between rye and wheat) from grains sourced locally in Southeast Alabama.
