PT Wood – Head Alchemist
PT is a Colorado native and has been in Salida since 1990. He’s in charge what goes into each bottle and when, and is the chief inspiration for our unofficial logo.
When not making spirits at the Distillery you may find him on the Arkansas River, skiing in Sawatch Range or out in the community in his elected role as Chaffee County Commissioner. He’s also a former Salida Mayor, Board Member of the American Craft Spirits Association, and President of the Colorado Distillers Guild.
Lee Wood – Chief Cook and Bottle Washer
Lee (also a Colorado native) runs the non-production piece of the business and works to make sure the machine runs smoothly. When not in the Distillery you can find him out on a backcountry ski tour, or with a fly rod in hand. He can’t grow nearly as a good a beard as PT but still managed to get elected as President of the Colorado Distillers Guild.
