Hodson named president of Distillery No. 209

Leslie Rudd, founder, has named Jeff Hodson as president of Distillery No. 209. He will oversee all operations, sales and marketing for the distillery with an emphasis on solidifying distributor partnerships and alignments both domestically and abroad.

Industry veteran Hodson served most recently as the Western Region VP of Tito’s Handmade Vodka. He has a long history of growing brands to national success by managing a variety of portfolios including Kobrand, Pernod Ricard, and Spirits Marque One (Svedka Vodka). “Jeff’s ability to cultivate new and existing markets is an ideal fit for the position of president,” Rudd says.

Uniquely located on San Francisco’s Pier 50, Distillery No. 209 – the world’s only distillery built over water – marries the best of traditional Old World distilling techniques and ingredients with innovative thinking and technology to create a modern-styled gin. No. 209 Gin is a small-batch, artisanal spirit hand-fashioned and distilled five times using all-natural ingredients sourced globally.
