Randy Allender

Randy teaching at Moonshine University

With over 40 years of experience in the distilling industry, Randy retired in July 2013 from Jim Beam after 24 years of service, and opened R Allender Consulting, LLC to provide technical advice to those wishing to build a distilled spirits plant. He learned all he could about the “ins and outs” of each operation at a working distillery: mashing, fermenting, distilling, steam generation, aging & warehousing, barrel filling & dumping, production of distillers dried grain (DDG), and many others. He also learned about the mechanics behind the operations, including: sprinkler systems, alarm systems, OSHA workplace requirements, boilers/steam systems, electrical power systems, electrical control systems including PLC’s / HMI’s, construction methods, and environmental requirements.
