Meet Our Team Member, Vanessa

MB Roland Distillery would like to introduce our team members, the folks responsible for the continued success of what we do here


Meet Vanessa, our Director of Operations! Vanessa started almost a year ago, but according to her, “Time really does fly when you are having fun!”

Before joining the team at MB Roland Distillery, Vanessa was a Procurement Specialist. “That job parallels in many ways to my current position involving budgets, project management, contract negotiations, and regulatory requirements. I know; those are absolutely none of the cool things that happen at the distillery. However, outside my office, you will find me all over the premises mingling with the best part of the job, my coworkers, our extended fur family, and of course, Bourbon.”

Here are some additional Q and A’s to get to know Vanessa!


Q: What is your favorite MBR product?

  • A: My palate for aged spirits varies from time to time, but my top picks are our Bourbon, Dark Fired Whiskey, and Rye Whiskey. My favorite unaged MB Roland spirit is St. Elmo’s Fire. The pairing of cinnamon and cayenne is a party to this girl’s palate!


Q: Do you have a favorite cocktail made from MBR products?

  • A: My favorite cocktail is a Bootleg Chocolate, made with MB Roland’s St. Elmo’s Fire, Baileys, Giffard Creme de Cacao, Godiva chocolate liqueur, and cream.


Vanessa continued to say, “When I am not working or sipping Bootleg Chocolates at the Mixer in Hopkinsville, KY, I spend my days making memories with friends and family!
