Buzzard’s Roost Sipping Whiskey Expands Sales Team

to Support Brand Growth

New Sales Managers Will Serve Six of Buzzard’s Roost 20 Markets

Louisville, KY – Dec. 5, 2023 – As Buzzard’s Roost Sipping Whiskeys continues its momentum, the company welcomes two industry pros to its sales team. Kaitlyn Morrison will sell the Buzzard’s Roost portfolio across Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee, and Mike Adams, based in Northern Kentucky, will cover Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Kaitlyn Morrison joins Buzzard’s Roost from RNDC, where she was a key account manager for 200 spirits, beer and non-alcoholic suppliers. She made the move to focus on a single, excellent brand that is in growth mode, and to activate ideas that will keep the momentum going for Buzzard’s Roost. “I’m excited about bringing Buzzard’s Roost bourbons and rye whiskeys to more people through creative tasting events, bottle signings and more,” she says. “The quality of the liquid is awesome and I’m excited about helping more people discover it.”

Mike Adams comes to Buzzard’s Roost with decades of experience in multiple tiers of the beverage alcohol industry. Most recently, he was State Sales Manager for the Pernod Ricard portfolio for Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits.

Adams says it was the appeal of joining a growing brand and the experience of the founders that drew him to Buzzard’s Roost. “I wanted to get back to what makes this industry fun – building relationships by selling an outstanding product,” he says. “And Jason Brauner’s expertise in bourbon and in the restaurant industry, coupled with Judith Hollis Jones’ business experience with chain restaurants makes for a strong combination of leadership. I’m really excited to be a part of Buzzard’s Roost.”

Buzzard’s Roost National Sales Manager Ryan Hitch oversees the Buzzard’s Roost sales team. “Having boots on the ground in our key markets is critical to gaining market penetration,” says Hitch. “With the addition of Mike and Kaitlyn, we’re in great shape to keep expanding our footprint.”
