Our podcast guest is Lisa Roper Wicker, President, Head Distiller and Blender of Widow Jane Distillery in Brooklyn, New York. Wicker started her career in alcohol production as a farm hand after working several years in the arts. Moving to another Midwestern winery, Brown County, she worked her way through learning production and patched her education together at UC Davis, Purdue and others. After eight years, she moved to Kentucky, a state with an old wine tradition to build a winery for an established vineyard. Wicker transitioned into distilling at Limestone Branch in Marion County, Kentucky.
