Ian Stirsman, former master distiller of MGP distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, will become the first master distiller of the company’s newly rebranded Lawrenceburg distillery Ross & Squibb, effective immediately. Stirsman will head all Ross & Squibb brands, including George Remus Bourbon and Rossville Union Rye Whiskey, as well as any future brands released under the Ross & Squibb name.

A trained chemical engineer, Stirsman worked in a variety of roles in MGP’s distilling operations from 2014, before earning his Master Distiller certification in 2019. In his new role, he also will continue to serve as a resource in support of operations at MGP’s historic Lawrenceburg distillery.

“When we set out to name the inaugural head of Ross & Squibb operations, our hope was to find someone from within the MGP family – someone who possessed both the technical skills for the job and knowledge of the processes and traditions that made the George Remus and Rossville Union brands so great,” said David Bratcher, COO and president of branded spirits for MGP. “We’re excited for Ian, and we’re eager to see him lead as Ross & Squibb’s first master distiller.”
