It was one of those moments you can remember in detail years later. It was a sunny August afternoon in 2008. Michael and Jenny discussed what kind of life they wanted to build together. They were tired of long international work trips and hours spent in a lab.
They knew they wanted to spend their days working side by side and building something as a family. They wanted Michael to be able to utilize his Ph.D. in physics and knack for innovation. Jenny wanted to finally work locally and develop a business that was a part of the community. And they knew they wanted to be a part of the movement back to creating things with intention, love, and responsibility. So Griffo Distillery became the concept.
“A distillery. It’s a distillery,” Jenny said. And, once it was out there, that was it.
Five years of penny-pinching, business plan writing, (cough) distilling in their home, interning at distilleries, and one outstanding small business loan later, Griffo Distillery was born. Two more years of full-time construction, recipe testing, and brand development opened the doors to Griffo Distillery in April 2015.
