As President, head distiller, and custodian at Oak and Grist Distilling Company, William wears many hats. He graduated from Warren Wilson College with a B.S. in Sustainable Agriculture. His degree led him to work for several years as an artisanal cheese maker for a small family creamery.
After visiting the father of his business partner in the Moray region of Scotland, William returned with the inspiration, drive, and mentorship to craft an American Single Malt whisky.
Vice-President and … at Oak and Grist Distilling Company, Russell was quite literally brought up in a Distillery. Born the son of Edwin Dodson, the eventual distillery manger at Glen Moray, Russell attended the University of Aberdeen where he received with honors his B.E. in Mechanical Engineering.
Having spent many years as VP of Operations at a boutique construction management firm, his education and family knowledge positions him to be a guiding force behind the spirits at Oak and Grist Distilling Company.
