Chris is from Kentucky and dreamt of going back there after finishing his service in the Navy, hoping to work in one of the big named bourbon distilleries. Alas, he is not related to any of the big shots back in KY and, let’s face it, the big bourbon distilleries are still very much family run businesses.
Keith, on the other hand, is Washington born and bred, and recently retired from the Air Force Reserves. Keith is a tinkerer and was in desperate need of a hobby to occupy his free time, lest he drive his wife and children mad dismantling (and only half-way reassembling) all of their household appliances.
So it was a match made in heaven when these two met while working for the railroad and, after giving one another much grief for the other’s “poor choice” of military branch in which to serve, they hit it off when the topic of discussion turned to a common interest – distilled spirits – and thus, the Carbon Glacier Distillery was born.Address:
