Marianne Eaves

Master Distiller and Co-owner
Forbidden Bourbon

Born in Tennessee and raised in Kentucky, geography alone may have been telling Marianne Eaves that her destiny was to be a whiskey maker. However, it was courage to buck tradition, her creative engineering mind and a voracious appetite for learning that actualized her place in history as Kentucky’s First Female Master Distiller. Her combination of technical knowledge, hands-on experience, specialized palate and focus on thoughtful innovation are a unique formula for her role as Master Distiller. Her newest product for celebrity clients Peyton Manning and Andy Roddick, Sweetens Cove, most recently earned a double gold at the New York Spirits Competition. Those who have tasted the product she designed and distilled at Castle & Key Distillery agree that the future is very bright for Eaves.
