Since then, I have loved witnessing our brand grow and thrive,” mentions Castle. “In that time, we’ve created and released multiple products, filled over 1,000 barrels of whiskey, and grown our team by more than double. It has been a wild and crazy journey, and I look forward to continuing this journey with Old Dominick as the new senior vice president.”
