It is with great sadness I read the news of the passing of Truman Cox. He was a good friend, great father and husband and a passionate member of our whiskey fraternity. Loved ones can never leave too late, but Truman truly left too early. He will be missed. Brett Pontoni Specialty Spirits Buyer Binny's Beverage Depot

Truman passed away on Saturday, February 9 after a short illness. Truman joined the company in 2004 as Lead Chemist at Buffalo Trace Distillery and in 2011 realized his dream to become the Master Distiller at A. Smith Bowman Distillery in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Truman's passion for our industry was evident to everyone who knew him and he left a notable and positive mark on our company in the time he was with us.
