Morgan McLachlan grew up in the Canadian Pacific Northwest, where she spent many afternoons exploring the forest, forging what would become a lifelong fascination with plants. While she appreciates distilling tradition, she considers herself a punk rock distiller, experimenting with any and all plants, herbs, and spices that she can get her hands on. Her expertise in botanicals coupled with an encyclopedic knowledge of distilling are the driving forces behind AMASS. Since co-founding AMASS with CEO Mark Thomas Lynn in 2018, Morgan’s role has shifted several times over. Now AMASS’s Chief Product Officer and Master Distiller, Morgan is still in the business of distilling and developing spirits, but she now oversees larger business operations as well. It’s not an entirely new realm for her to inhabit–she learned the ins and outs of how to run a business when she first founded the Spirit Guild nearly a decade ago.
