Matthew Georgacakis-Nurre – Master Distiller
Matt Georgacakis-Nurre grew up in Iowa, and comes from a long line of farmers going back to the 1840s. After high school he double majored in Chemistry and Biochemistry at University of Iowa. The idea to make alcohol first came to Matt when camping with his cousins enjoying wine his grandfather had made. After years working for Pfizer and then in flavors and fragrances focusing on Research and Development, he refined his passion and founded Two Eagles.
Matt lives in Mount Prospect with his wife of 5 years and their 2 boys. He enjoys the outdoors and looks forward to taking his boys camping in the coming years
