Masters of their Craft: Woodford Reserve’s Master Distiller Chris Morris


It’s rare to meet a man with bourbon literally in his DNA. But such is the case for Woodford Reserve’s Master Distiller, Chris Morris: “There’s a special source of pride in developing the next generation of whiskey makers.”

And it’s not just Morris’ work as Master Distiller that makes every bottle exceptional. “Every detail in our distillery matters to me” — from the wood in the barrels to the grass and the spring running through the property — and it will matter to you, too. Watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at Morris’ dedication to hand-crafting. It’s all part of our Masters of their Craft series, presented in partnership with Woodford Reserve.
