Danny’s extensive background in brewing and passion for the science, art, and history behind bourbon is what led him to become the Master Distiller at Barton 1792 Distillery. After earning a bachelor’s degree in Fermentation Science from the University of California, Davis, Danny embarked on a career in the brewing industry. He began his career as a brewing supervisor with Anheuser-Busch, Inc., and from there was promoted to a number of technical and managerial roles in a variety of locations, and in due course became the company’s Senior Brewmaster at its Cartersville, Georgia brewery. Following a 27-year career with Anheuser-Busch, Danny went on to become the Brewery Technical Director at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. where he oversaw the company’s brewing, quality, research and development, raw materials, and sensory operations. After holding a variety of brewing roles for 31 years, Danny accepted the opportunity to use his expertise to distill spirits for Barton 1792 Distillery. Danny was named Master Distiller at Barton 1792 Distillery in 2018, and is excited to use his passion for bourbon, and his beverage art and science experience, to continue the Distillery’s tradition of producing award-winning whiskies.
