I accepted a new position as the regional manager for the Northeast with House Spirits. How did 5 years at ND get me to this point? Hopefully by making me smart and thoughtful, but in this case, the company is partly owned by Joe Montana and his visit to Philly put me in front of their CEO.

If you live in the 21 states from NC to Maine and west to Minnesota, I'm coming to a bar near you with Aviation gin in 2013.

Thanks to all in the BR who have been so kind to me in my long journey to get a serious job. If you are in Miami, hopefully I can buy you a drink.

For those interested enough to still be reading, House Spirits is a craft distillery out of Portland Oregon. Their flagship is Aviation gin which is a floral/citrus heavy gin in the New Western Dry style made for the Aviation cocktail.

Cheers and Go Irish!


The best of luck and congratulations *

Not much on gin, but then again your job is to sell me.

And we do have a pretty good crew of Backroomigans in the Raleigh area.


Congratulations - Aviation is a great "New Western" style

gin. I assume you have met Ryan Magarian? He has been a very influential voice in the resurgance currently being seen in the Gin category (believe it or not, there have been over 140+ new gins introduced globally in the past 2 years).

Congratulations on the job - celebrate with an Aviation cocktail!


Good piece from CBS Sunday morning on the gin resurgence

There is a lot of excitement going on in Gin right now - a lot of it led by guys like Magarian and Brian Ellison.

Funnily enough, I recently met Brian Ellison at a panel discussion (he is doing some very cool stuff in local/artisanal spirits) and I work with Steve Olson regularly. Both guys are very influential in the gin and cocktail world.


I have met him and am looking forward to getting to know
