Founder, Copper & Kings Distillery

Joe Heron

Joe presenting at Moonshine University

I have started 4 businesses, worked at executive levels for multi-national corporations in Africa, Europe and North America. And I'm still not sure I want to really define myself. I am an entrepreneur, with my own start-ups and in larger corporations. I love building distinctive, memorable brands. I love innovation and the energy and oxygen it provides companies, teams, and commercial success. Business is my creative expression, and there is tremendous joy making the intangible manifest, commercial ceramic.

Start Ups:
Blue Sky Miners Inc (Bar Diver Ready To Serve Cocktails, Ardea Curated Boutique Spirits, Innovation Consulting).
