Meet Our Team Member, Kris
MB Roland Distillery would like to introduce our team members, the folks responsible for the continued success of what we do here.
Meet Kris Newton! Kris has been with MB Roland for 2 years now after previously working at Jostens. He helps with bottling, gives tastings and tours.
Here are some additional Q and A’s to get to know Kris!
Q: What’s the best part of your job?
- A: The family environment, meeting new people, and being able to work both inside and outside.
Q: Do you have a favorite cocktail made from MBR products?
- A: I really enjoy the old fashions made from our straight bourbon.
Q: Do you have a favorite pet at MBR?
- A: I like all the pets there, but my favorite one would be a dog named Wolfgang and a cat that we had but since passed away, Burley.
Q: When giving a tour, what is the most asked question about the distillery?
- A: Two of the questions I hear the most are, “Do you grow your own corn?” and “What are your favorite items that are on the tasting bar?”
Kris went on to say, “I am 24 and an Eagle Scout, and I enjoy doing graphic design and photography on the side. One of the things I really enjoy about working at MB Roland is the owner and all of my coworkers. The owners Paul and Merry Beth do so much for us and take care of their employees like family. My coworkers also make it really enjoyable to work there, and we all get along well!”
MB Roland Distillery is a completely “grain to glass” craft distillery located in Pembroke, KY. We use local white corn to hand make each of our products ranging from our unique “distillation & barrel proof” Kentucky Bourbon to our naturally-flavored Kentucky Pink Lemonade.
