Introducing our new Head Distiller!
We're thrilled to announce that Matt Ellis has joined
the MDC family as our new Head Distiller.
Matt learned the trade as an apprentice
under esteemed Master Distiller, Brandon Collins
before branching out on his own and joining MDC.
Growing up on the North Fork, Matt’s interests
as a distiller include showcasing locally grown grains and other products and building a brand that represents the community that he grew up in as a whole.
Matt will be playing an
integral role in bringing the vision for
"MDC at the Firehouse"
, our new distillery & tasting room
in Riverhead, NY, to life.
