#333 – Startup Series – Rob Forster, Wonderbird Spirits - Making Gin Is Truly An Art

75 minutes

In episode 333, we welcome our guest, Rob Forster, co-founder of Wonderbird Spirits, Mississippi's first grain-to-glass gin distillery. 

 

 

In today’s episode, we hear how Rob stopped practicing law and decided to open up a distillery to create two gold-medal winning gins. Rob shares what it was like to get the company off the ground and then dives into the process of distilling the alcohol from start to finish. We talk about the regulatory differences to sell directly to restaurants and sell DTC in 37 states, and why the little things like choosing what bottle to use makes a huge difference.

 

 

As we wind down, we hear about Wonderbird Spirits’ current fundraising experience and what the future holds for the company. 

 

 

Please enjoy this episode with Wonderbird Spirits’ Robert Forster.
