Jeremy Craig, Head Distiller of Copper Bottom Craft Distillery, shares his story. Craig explains the inspiration for the craft distillery in Holly Hill, Florida, near the Daytona Beach area. “Copperbottom” is a British Royal Navy nautical term from the 1750s that described a Navy ship coated with copper to increase speed and prevent barnacle growth. Later, the term would be applied to sailors deemed reliable, genuine, and trustworthy.
Craig came to Moonshine University in Louisville, Kentucky to discover what it would take to launch his dream distillery. At the 6-Day Distiller course, he was able to gain contacts, knowledge, and skills that saved him time, money, and mistakes.
