Branded Hearts Distillery founder Ryan Cherrick offers a perspective on life and business that is as unique as the spirits he engineers. When Ryan took a dramatic detour from his career in law enforcement, he didn't look at himself as aged, but as imprinted. His attitude toward creating unique and powerful flavors in his whiskey and rum is the same. "The science behind it is quite romantic," Ryan explains, "but that's not what the name implies." He goes onto explain how a branded heart refers to the portion of spirit kept during distillation that is aged in charred oak barrels. "When you walk away from something having had a good experience, it stays with you. You now have a branded heart," he explains, adding that he enjoys being able to approach his new venture both scientifically and artistically.
