Will Schragis

WILLIAM SCHRAGIS

Chief Sales Officer &

Chief Product Innovation Officer

Will is not going to sleep very much until everybody knows where to find Stellum Bourbon and Rye. He’s a champion planner, from logistics to whiskey programs. He can also tell you the best place to grab a drink in just about any American city, and the best place to get coffee in just about any American airport.

NIC CHRISTIANSEN

Assistant Blender &

MANAGER OF BLENDING OPERATIONS

You might find Nic sitting pensively in the blending lab, mulling over twenty options for a single barrel selection. You also might see her drilling into barrels to check on their evolution before advising they are ready to pull into one of our blends. If you see a Stellum shirt racing past you on a mountain bike, that’s probably her too.
