Lexie Phillips Leads by Example at Jack Daniel’s (Episode 949: May 15, 2022)

Lexie Phillips grew up around Lynchburg, Tennessee watching generations of her relatives go to work at the Jack Daniel Distillery. Now, she’s leading the family – and the distillery team as Assistant Distiller alongside Master Distiller Chris Fletcher. She’s been in the role for a little more than a year, and has become a role model for other women working at the distillery. We’ll meet Lexie Phillips on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, thieves strike at Glenfarclas Distillery’s visitors center, while another generation of Beams gets the title of Master Distiller and millions of dollars in whiskies go on the auction block. We’ll have those stories and much more on this week’s WhiskyCast!
