Meet our Distiller, Mike
MB Roland Distillery would like to introduce our distillers, the folks responsible for the continued success of what we do here.
Mike Bibb started working at MB Roland Distillery as a tour guide in the gift shop a little over two years ago. He then became a full-time distiller about a year ago.
Before starting at MB Roland, Mike was in the military for 14 years and spent most of those years stationed at Fort Campbell. His rank was Staff Sergeant E-6, and he was with the 187th Infantry Regiment, Rakkasans, of the 101st Airborne Division. He was deployed to Iraq (OIF 5-6) and Afghanistan (OEF 10-11).
Here are some more Q and A’s to get to know Mike!

- A: Full-time, about a year after working in the gift shop as a tour guide.
Q: What’s the best part about your job?
- A: The people I work with!
Q: What is your favorite MBR product?
- A: I really like the Rye Whiskey.
Q: Do you have a favorite cocktail made from MBR products?
