Redemption’s line of premium whiskeys are enabling a new generation to discover America’s original favorite rye-forward whiskey.
As Master Blender, David pairs his love for whiskey with a passionate interest in history: “Rye is the past and future of American whiskey. I’m excited to know that I’ve yet to drink my best whiskey, and that when I do, it will be made with rye.”
Raised in Kentucky, David says whiskey has been a common thread throughout his life. Growing up, he would admire the old bourbon decanters in his grandfather’s basement, and in culinary school, he grew to appreciate Kentucky’s long spirit-making heritage. David spent more than a decade working as a chef and a bartender, which taught him the importance of hospitality, expert mixing, and high quality ingredients. Later, he became a craft distillery operator and a bourbon Brand Ambassador, rising quickly to a Head Distiller’s position by making high quality bourbons, vodkas, moonshines, and brandies.
