Founder & Distiller

Five Saints Distillery

Growing up in the Upstate New York countryside provided a childhood of outdoor fun and adventure from nightly football on a neighbor’s farm and swimming with the cows to sledding on Baldy Mountain. John explored on a bike with one pedal (what Freedom!) and spent quality time with his Dad, three uncles and later Giovanni. His first retail sales lesson as a stock boy in a local pharmacy inspired John to become a Registered Pharmacist. In Pharmacy School he spent a day in one of the courses on spirits, manufacturing and proofing. Little did he know back then that he would be putting that experience into practice in the Five Saints Distillery.

Shortly after John pursued an MBA and entered the world of Pharmaceutical Marketing. It is there that he met Jay who at the time was focused on the Asia Pacific region. Jay recruited John to help with marketing and the two worked well together. It was a no brainer years later for John to recruit his close friend and mentor to help build Five Saints Distilling.

As John puts it “everything comes full circle and with time the future reveals itself.” Five Saints Distilling was developed as a unique micro-distillery producing premium spirits in honor of five great men, embracing the values of Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Community and Family. Five Saints is here to help revitalize a proud community and ensure that friends in Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and around the world....."Share the Spirits!"
