Who We Are
Established in 2014 at Gamlin Whiskey House in St. Louis’ famous Central West End, the Missouri Whiskey Society is an illustrious group who is passionate about the world of whiskey. Our mission is to have fun while learning more about every aspect of our favorite spirit.
We were founded by Derek and Lucas Gamlin, the proprietors of Gamlin Whiskey House; Gamlin Restaurant Group Bar Manager Dustin Parres; and Creative Entourage President Elizabeth Arway.
Our master members include Fred Noe, Jim Beam’s great grandson and seventh-generation master distiller at Jim Beam Master Distillery, Laphroaig master distiller John Campbell and Dark Horse Master Distiller Patrick Garcia.
