Jessica Osborne

If Jessica were a bourbon she would be Noah’s Mill, a vibrant auburn full of dynamic character and pep with a brown sugar finish. Like Noah’s Mill, Jessica leaves everyone she meets wearing a smile and filled with that unmistakable Kentucky warmth. Jessica is a graduate of Elizabethtown Community and Technical College where she studied Marketing, English and Business Communications. Jessica joined the Willett Distillery family in 2014 as a tour guide, however her interest in the whiskey business dates back to childhood. As a youngster, Jessica spent countless meals listening to her father and grandfather share their experiences and observations from a lifetime of working in this storied industry. Jessica aided in the maturation of the Willett hospitality experience in her role as Gift Shop Assistant Manager and was later promoted to Willett Ambassador and Whiskey Educator. Now, Jessica spends her days traveling the country, bringing Willett whiskey and that special brand of Willett southern charm to the world. While Jessica’s passion for sharing whiskey with consumers and bartenders in the most bustling entertainment districts in the US is evident, she is always pleased to return to her cozy small-town home in Lebanon KY.

At home, Jessica is carrying on the family tradition of whiskey education, training up her three children Taylor, Abbi and Braydon in the business of their ancestors.
