Caley Shoemaker currently leads operations of The Hangar 1 Distillery as head distiller. A Denver native, Caley got her start in craft-spirits distilling at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey where she immersed herself in every aspect of the production process. She’s a self-proclaimed “spirits nerd” fascinated with how fermentation, distillation, ingredient selection and maturation affect the quality and flavor of the final product.
