Arlon Casey Jones, Master Distiller
“Born into a family with spirits in their blood, Arlon Casey, or as lots of folks call him, “AJ”, provides the distillery with passion, vision and understanding to produce exciting spirits in a still design of his Granddad Casey Jones. AJ designed and built the distillery and Casey’s Corner Gift Shop.
Why does she ask so many questions? Lots of people ask that after meeting AJ’s wife, Peg. Always interested in what’s going on, whose doing what and why! She works in the distillery, the gift shop, helps where needed and asks lots of questions!
Always grinning, mostly because he has some keen observation of a situation that will result in a “Tommy-ism”! He is amazing - always helping, watching, suggesting, and has hands-on every aspect. There is nothing he hasn’t or won’t do at the distillery, as long as it can have an element of fun!
Very simply, AJ, Tommy and JR named Floyd “Chief Engineer”. A WWII veteran with an electrical engineering career and incredible amount of knowledge of many other areas, he brings a wealth of history and information (that is many times way over our heads). He comes to help with runs and keep the visitors informed and entertained!
JR and AJ together can dream up and build just about anything and with JR’s abilities and AJ’s ideas things get done. JR also is on hand, when not fixing something or building AJ & Tommy’s ideas, for mashing, cooking, bottling and all the other work that makes the distillery go.
