John Little

Smooth Ambler
VP/Head Distiller
Maxwelton, WV
John began his career in distilling in 2008, as the inception for the business that would become Smooth Ambler Spirits first began to take flight. A fervent reader with a passionate and canny understanding of procedure, Little quickly learned all he could; absorbing everything from hands-on distilling to studying – line by line almost - the Federal regulations on distilling and licensure. Smooth Ambler opened its doors in April of 2010, with John as Vice President, Head Distiller, and part-owner, and Little continues to fulfill those roles today as the business has grown to include the distillation of award-winning and highly regarded Whiskey, Vodka, Gin, and Barrel-Aged Gin. Under Little’s supervision, in tandem with the spirits Smooth Ambler distills, it now carefully selects other fine whiskeys which it merchant-bottles and brings to market under the Old Scout brand, another effort for which it has been highly praised.
