Manifest was founded on the principle that a great vision can only be achieved through unity. Individual talents and abilities are integral to our success, but the sum is always greater than the individual parts. This founding principle revealed itself naturally when establishing our team, comprised of David Cohen, Scott Kennelly, Trey Mills and Tom Johnson. The individual journeys of these four gentlemen led them together to form what is now Manifest.
Manifest celebrates the best of what American craftsmanship has to offer, from the American-made distillation equipment to the grains sourced from a network of co-ops throughout North America. Our distillation is influenced by training from famed brew school the Siebel Institute, researching and shadowing master distillers throughout Kentucky and elsewhere along with a resilient desire to never stop learning, growing and chasing our best selves.
