Distiller Hippocampus

Lex studied Biochemisty & Pharmacology at University before deciding that the lab-life wasn’t for him. He began brewing at Little Creatures in Fremantle where he remained a few years before a chance meeting introduced him to the Founder/Brewmaster of Aegir Bryggeri in Norway where he spent a year. This was where he had his first taste of commercial distilling.

Lex returned to Western Australia and became the Head Brewer at Cheeky Monkey Brewery in Margaret River. In 2014 he was offered the role of Distiller at Hippocampus Distillery.

Lex enjoys Science Fiction, loud music and eating his bodyweight in charcuterie.
