In this episode of Bourbon With Friends, presented by the Bourbon Charity Ball for Folds of Honor. The guys sit down with Jacob Call, Master Distiller of Green River Distillery.
To say he was born with whiskey in his veins may be a stretch, but distilling bourbon has been in Jacob Call’s family for eight generations. An eighth-generation Kentuckian (born and raised in Bardstown), Jacob graduated from Murray State University with a degree in business administration. He started his career in banking, rising in the ranks to Chief Operating Officer before the familial call of the spirits business became too strong.
His grandfather and father had spent many years working at Jim Beam (where his father was mentored by Booker Noe) and his father went on to become Master Distiller at Florida Caribbean Distillers, where Jacob joined the team in 2007. At Florida Distillers, Jacob held various senior management positions in purchasing, bulk sales, and distillery operations.
Jacob joined the team in the fall of 2014 to oversee the renovations. As Master Distiller, he oversees all aspects of whiskey production and warehousing for the facility.
