Speaker Bio
Dan Burke began his career in the bourbon heartland 18 years ago. He was Owner/Founder of Gemelli Wine + Spirits, a boutique wine and spirits shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Gemelli means “twins” in Italian, named in honor of his identical twin daughters. He was a Key Account Manager for Southern Wine & Spirits (Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits) and most recently Regional Manager for Bronco Wine Company. Burke holds numerous wine and spirits credentials.
Burke quite literally grew up in the food, wine and spirits business, working in his grandfather’s Italian restaurants from a young age. His great-great grandfather was a bootlegger, his great grandfather coopered bourbon barrels, his grandfather was foreman of that same cooperage and his grandmother worked for the now famous Stitzel-Weller Distillery, the original makers of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.
