In early 2015, John began raising capital from friends and family who have been believers and supporters of the brand since its inception. As an ex-banker and business consultant, John was very meticulous in developing his business plan and calculating his risks. He knew precisely how much vodka needed to be produced and sold at a specific price point in order to make this dream a reality. The search for suitable premises began immediately and by the end of the year, he had leased our facility in North Vancouver. This is when Randy Poulin, the Son-In-Law, joined the Stealth family and began helping John assemble the distillery from an operational standpoint. As a University of British Columbia mechanical engineering graduate with experience working in the Vancouver’s craft beer industry, Randy was well versed in food & beverage operations and played a key roll in the distillery’s assembly.
