Louisville’s David Dafoe wins Kentucky’s SBA top honors

In Kentucky, Mr. David Dafoe, Founder and Chief Operating Officer for Flavorman and Distilled Spirits Epicenter in Louisville, was named the SBA Kentucky 2016 Small Business Person of the Year. Mr. Dafoe founded Pro-Liquitech International in 1992 after being employed at the Brown-Forman Beverage Company, where he developed highly successful new products. Pro-Liquitech evolved into Flavorman, an international custom beverage production company. Its impressive client list includes internationally known brands and some of the world’s largest distilleries. Flavorman secured three SBA loans to grow the business and relocate near downtown Louisville, kick starting a revitalization of the area. In 2012, David founded Flavorman’s sister company, the Distilled Spirits Epicenter, on the Flavorman campus. The Distilled Spirits Epicenter is made up of three distinct and collaborative parts: Moonshine University, Grease Monkey Distillery and Challenge Bottling. Leaders attribute their success to the team. Flavorman and the Distilled Spirits Epicenter currently have 30 full time and four part time employees.
