What happens when a guy with a fascination with distilleries and two farmers with a passion for science and chemistry meet on a 60 acre preserved farm? Nauti Spirits is born.
Steven Miller began his professional career as an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy. He is currently a transactional and regulatory attorney at a top-tier Washington DC law firm and has served for a dozen years as a senior executive in a Fortune 150 energy company. His earliest memories of the shore are of Cape May.
Corey & Dorey Bryan
Dorey moved to Cape May in the early 80’s. A summer local from birth, she was raised on Philadelphia’s Main Line. She left her early career in the banking industry to be a proud stay-at-home mom. Dorey is known locally for volunteer work in the community. An avid naturalist and birder, Dorey is excited to share the natural beauty of the farm distillery and it’s field to bottle bounty with the public.
The son of a USCG officer/entrepreneur, Corey washed ashore in Cape May at the age of two. His family has been involved in the hospitality industry for decades, but Corey is best known as “Mr. Lemon Tree” from his years of running the family’s former Cape May business, where he established a cult customer following. The distillery will finally allow Corey to follow his true passion for science and chemistry.
Behind every great bottle of Nauti Spirits Vodka, Gin, Rum and Whiskey is a great team making it all happen. Leading that team is our Head Distiller, Veronica Townsend, one of the few female Head Distillers in the entire country! She has been with Nauti Spirits since the beginning and after a detailed apprenticeship, she took over the reigns in July 2018. Veronica graduated from Northeastern University, where she was a Division I athlete for the Huskies rowing team. She went on to train in culinary arts and is now using those skills in producing our award winning spirits.
