Matt Freeman

Production Manager

Matt oversees our production team to ensure that every step of every bottle is lovingly produced to our high quality standards. There isn't much moderation in Matt's work ethic - he just get's it done. Hearing him whistle a Slayer song will certainly enhance the aging of any spirit.


Adam Sattler

Bellwether Manager & Special Projects

With an extensive background in hospitality, Adam oversees every aspect of Bellwether operations. His complex pallet drives the ideas around our fantastic and unique menus, while his front-of-house skills ensure an exceptional experience for all our guests. Adam prefers lightly starched, ironed socks.


Dan Phillips

Head Bartender & Relationship Manager

Dan, literally, brings a world of bartending experience to our team. His travel around the globe allow him to bring exotic cultures and flavor into many of his creations. When he isn't behind the bar, Dan assists our Sales efforts by working cocktail magic with on-premise accounts to assist in elevating guest experiences. Dan has his passport number tatooed on his arm.


Courtney Miller

Activations & Sales

Courtney joined our Sales team all the way from Ida, MI (it's actually only 21 miles). Pulling from her extensive bar tending skills, she is responsible for working with all of our on-premise accounts (bars and restaurants) to help train bar staff, build cocktail menus, host events and generally spread the experience that our brands deliver. Courtney can easily change a flat tire with one hand and shake a perfect margarita with the other.
