FOUNDER + DISTILLER
Dairy Distillery founder Omid McDonald is an eclectic serial entrepreneur whose past startups range from medical devices to software for DJs.
An engineer and prolific coder, Omid has several patents and academic articles to his credit. Omid is also an able tradesman having built several buildings.
He became enamored with distilling while visiting a craft distillery in Charleston. It wasn’t long until Omid started making moonshine in his basement with a copper pot still he hand built. He saw an opportunity to pursue his dream of starting a distillery when he learned of the problem of excess milk sugar plaguing the dairy industry.
Omid is applying his engineering and entrepreneurial skills to help dairy farmers and the environment by developing high value applications for excess lactose.
