Meet Marianne Eaves

Master Blender of Sweetens Cove Tennessee Bourbon

Marianne Eaves offered some insights and details from her recent project as Master Blender of Sweetens Cove Tennessee Bourbon. No stranger to the spirits industry or creating and growing one-of-a-kind premium spirits, Marianne will forever hold a place in history as Kentucky’s First Female Bourbon Master Distiller since Prohibition. She was recognized by Whiskey Advocate Magazine as “the Next Generation” of the bourbon industry; honored by Forbes in their 30 under 30 list in 2015; named as one of America’s Top 40 under 40 Tastemakers by Wine Enthusiast Magazine; and, was identified as one of the top “Southern Women” by Garden & Gun Magazine in 2019.

It is no wonder that she was recruited to serve as Master Blender of the first Sweetens Cove release.
