Watershed Distillery Hires First Head Distiller

Ohio-based Watershed Distillery announced the hiring of its first head distiller, Aaron Harris.

Harris will be responsible for overseeing production and quality control and will help lead the distillery team in bourbon innovation. Most recently, he was distillery supervisor for Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown, Ky. He also previously served as Distillery Supervisor for Barton 1792 Distillery.

“Aaron is a vital addition to the Watershed team,” Greg Lehman, CEO of Watershed Distillery, said in a news release. “To add this talented bourbon maker and rising star in the distilling industry to our team is exciting. After a year that has been challenging for so many in our industry, it means a lot that we are able to expand our team in 2021. We have big plans for Watershed and feel we are equipping ourselves with one of the best teams in the business,” Lehman adds.   

“I’m happy to be here in Columbus and to be part of an organization that has become such a respected name in the craft distilling industry,” Harris said. “We have exciting developments in store for Watershed’s bourbon offerings in 2021, and I’m looking forward to making bourbon in the Buckeye state.”
