Who’s at the bar?

Meet the team.

We’re three entrepreneurs and entertainers with a love for Bourbon Country.

Risk takers and move makers. Winers and diners. Storytellers and saveurs. And we always want one more Manhattan.

We love gathering for game days, spa days and work-all-days. But we’re also mamas who need to get up with our eight kids under eight (!!) for school days, play days and birthdays.

We have a business to run and a brand to build, up-and-comers to mentor, and movers and shakers to meet. We crave date night days and dance party days, but balance busting a move with early-bird-gets-the-worm days.

That’s why we believe: less is yes.

Spiritless is our solution to saying yes to more — and more often. It reflects our roots in hospitality, high-end spirits and, of course, our beloved, bourbon-soaked hometown, Louisville. Yet it’s at the forefront of the no-and-low-proof cocktail movement. It empowers us to forge beautiful human-to-human connections, to make healthy decisions around our drinking choices, to pick our potency and enjoy our favorite spirits while still doing it all… no matter the circumstances, occasion or day.

We hope it will do the same for you.
