Meet the Team

Joe and Kara are the faces behind B6D’s unique story. Their 100-proof passion for teaching you the art of distilling and love of a great cocktail will turn that passion into yours, too.


The Master Distiller

This engineer, lawyer and mother watched a documentary about craft distilling back in 2012. A year later she was in a Whiskey Workshop learning the trade and said “why not?” So Kara researched and researched, did some hobnobbing with industry leaders, attended more classes, developed a business plan and started saving her pennies.


The Seasoned Businessman

Fate has brought Kara and Joe together to form the perfect partnership for the perfect business for them both. Joe—also a lawyer and a real-estate developer—started brewing beer in his kitchen. That pastime blossomed into a love of all things brewed. And he was pretty good at it too, as he is with everything he sets his sights on. One thing is for sure: Joe loves a good time, loves his friends, and is enthusiastic to share what he has with those friends, old and new. And now he has the place to do it.
