We were extremely fortunate to meet and talk to Harlen Wheatley, the master distiller for Buffalo Trace Distillery. Harlen was visiting Effingham as a guest of Koerner Distributor. Harlen Wheatley is the pioneer of craft bourbon and whiskeys. He is responsible for the explosion of specialty whiskeys and bourbon world wide. Despite his celebrity status in the spirits industry he is humble, kind, and giving of his time. Village Wine management is thankful for the opportunity to meet him and be hosted by Koerner Distributor.
