Master Distiller, Ed Tiedge, is a former officer of the Marines and Wall Street bond trader who decided to pursue his passion for unique and excellent spirits. Ed began his journey into crafting spirits by studying distillation and vinification techniques in California and working at a small winery and distillery in Cognac, France. He then began researching the production of mead, a honey wine that has been made since ancient times. Thinking back on his experience in distilling wine into brandy, Ed began to formulate a process to distill honey wine into spirits.
Nowadays, Ed works hands-on every day with his crew to make great distillates at StilltheOne Distillery - the name of which is inspired by his wife and Chief Tasting Officer Laura, who, after all these years, is Still the One.
