With a budget of just $45,000, they established Banner Distilling in 2012. Using Craigslist, Google, and lots of resourcefulness, they designed and created their own still for just $300. Meanwhile, they kept their day jobs and toiled on their distillery nights and on weekends. They released Banner Organic Vodka in 2014 ahead of their preferred whiskey products so that that it could generate enough income while the whiskeys aged. The vodka went on to win multiple awards.
