James Caldwell

Co-Proprietor | Ringmaster of the Sh*t Show

While the title is entirely accurate, we often just call him the ‘booze boss’ for short.   The original vision for this crazy venture was firmly his, and he’s been the driving force behind each element of the distillery’s creation ever since.   On an average day, you’ll find him shepherding a stripping run in the stills, transporting spirit totes around the farm with our 1962 Massey- Ferguson tractor, and likely ending the day in a snuggle session with Valentine the cow.  Yes, you read that right.

Kristi Caldwell

Co-Proprietor | Micromanager of the Universe

Meet James’ far superior half, Kristi.  Her primary activity is attempting to control all that can’t be controlled.  (Which in our little world, is well, pretty much everything.) When she’s not busy with that, she’s nurturing the brand, and stickhandling all of the super fun regulatory and compliance reporting that comes along with alcohol production.  If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, she highly recommends picking up a copy of the Manufacturer’s License handbook.

Micah Rattink

Farm Steward | Curator, Anvil Collection

Currently, most of Micah’s time on the farm is spent taking care of the pastures and grounds, the animals, and assisting with all the heavy lifting that goes along with the distilling process. He also happens to be the farm Blacksmith. Need a hook, latch or hammer fashioned? He’s your guy. When not at the farm Micah can be found leading practice drills with the local Viking re-enactment group he belongs to. Yep, you read that right as well.

Erica Macasso

Distilling Consultant | Girl Friday

Deceptively sweet at first meeting, this girl makes some bad ass spirits. After completing her degree in General Biology at UBC, she obtained her Masters of Food & Beverage Science from the International Centre for Brewing & Distilling at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. The absolute best kind of science geek, Erica can most often be found behind the ferment tank checking brix numbers, or in the stillhouse staring at her favourite hydrometer.
