I am the CEO and Founder of Bootleg Distillation LLC, a new spirits company in New Orleans. As you read this, I will be running around the hotel in Dublin with cellphone in hand, putting the finishing touches to our beautiful new distillery. We go live at the end of this year. You can wish me luck in person. It is 10 years since I joined BAP in 2005, at my first conference in Birmingham and I am so looking forward to catching up with everyone. 10 years. Wow. When I am not building companies making alcohol, I am involved in many things entrepreneurial, civic and am a fully reformed academic. I am a keen golfer, a keener musician and have recently discovered the sport of bouldering. I am the husband of Tania Tetlow (BAP 2002) and the father of two small people who are my favorite things in the world.
