It all started during a family dinner with a joking statement of “let's make our own whisky.” With a shared love for good whisky and fascination to see how things are made, this father and son team decided to explore the idea. David and David Woods researched and studied (and some say obsessed) over how to build a still and process alcohol.
Being fortunate enough to travel to the Caribbean, they decided to build and operate a small hand made copper still on the island of Montserrat to put their research to the test. Turns out they were quite good at it and grew even more intrigued by the craft of small batch distilling. What they made rivaled some of their favorite brands, with a bit of a twist.
Father, David Woods has always been self-employed and with Wiggly Bridge Distillery his passion for excellence means that he tries and tests many recipes and is always striving to make each batch better than the last. Young David Woods (little David) has been part of the family business, is a jack of all trades and became a self-taught welder to build their copper still. With a knack for knowing how things work and extremely reliable tastebuds, David is an expert at picking up certain subtleties in his spirits.
