The Bardstown Bourbon Company (BBCo) announced today the appointment of John J. Mack to its board of directors. Mack is the former chairman and CEO of Morgan Stanley, having served in those roles from 2005 to 2011.

“The Bardstown Bourbon Company is honored to have John Mack join the board, says BBCo. co-founder and chairman Peter Loftin. “John is an extremely accomplished business leader and an experienced board member in both the public and non-profit sectors. We are confident that BBCo will greatly benefit from his judgment, insights, and counsel.”

Mack currently serves as chairman of Lantern Credit and is also on the board of Glencore International AG, Lending Club, Bloomberg Family Foundation and Tri Alpha Energy. In addition, he serves on the board of trustees of New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the University Hospital of both Columbia and Cornell. Mac’s appointment expands the BBCo Board to four directors, including Loftin, David Mandell, co-founder and president & CEO of BBCo, and Jeff Hopmayer, managing partner of the Brindiamo Group.

Due to the success of the BBCo Collaborative Distilling Program and massive demand for custom, authentic, Kentucky whiskey products, the company recently expanded the distillery to its current 3 million proof gallon capacity. The footprint can ultimately be expanded to more than 6 million proof gallons within the current design, by adding additional equipment.
