Meet The Maker: Dan Earnest

Without Dan, there would be no Whiskey Leatherworks. Dan is both the Founder and Chief Maker at Whiskey. Our company was born out of his deep commitment to the art of craftsmanship and the perservence of the American spirit. Every piece that passes through our doors has been influenced by his hands and his guidance. Dan is a patient and kind teacher, imparting his wisdom to our team of makers. Dan is the first one to the shop in the morning and the last one to leave at the end of the day. He works tirelessly for his family, clients, and his employees.

On the rare occasions that Dan is not in the shop, he's most likely lurking on a shoreline, estuary, or river with his fly rod though he may not always share exactly where.
