Bill Welter
Founder
Journeyman Distillery


While pursuing life’s adventures in St. Andrews, Scotland, Bill discovered a passion for great whiskey. His journey would have several stops after Scotland, working in the family banking business followed by the hospitality industry, before taking a leap of faith and opening Journeyman Distillery.

In the fleeting moments when he’s not dreaming of ways to improve Journeyman Distillery you will likely find Bill with his beautiful partner Johanna and newly hatched daughter Islay.
